  Volunteer Logo

Volunteers are a valuable part of our team. Working as a volunteer can give you new skills, you can find out about health care, meet new people and contribute to the community.

We recruit volunteers to work in clinical and non-clinical areas, to support and enhance the experience of our patients and visitors. These include:

- Mealtimes on wards
- Library trolley service
- Outpatient clinics
- Chaplaincy
- Pharmacy
- Main entrance welcomers
- Macmillan cancer and health information support

Chaplaincy volunteer opportunities

The Chaplaincy department have opportunities available for Pastoral Visitors and Befrienders to listen to patients on our wards and for Wheelchair Helpers to transport inpatients by wheelchair to Sunday and mid-week services.

Our application process includes:

• Disclosure and Barring Service application
• Occupational Health clearance
• Two references
• Attendance at a one day induction and additional training as required for the role

Out of pocket expenses incurred when attending to volunteer are reimbursed.

An awareness event will be held at:

Rotherham Hospital Chaplaincy Department, C level, Junction 3
Thursday April 6th 1.30pm
Refreshments will be provided.

Jo Farey, Voluntary Services Coordinator, will provide information about the application and training process. Revd Jon Bellfield and Fr John Adikwu will provide more information about the roles available. If you would like to discuss these opportunities further, or to book your place, please contact: Revd Jon Bellfield: 01709 424098

Midwifery Experience
Our volunteers are placed in areas where they can make the most difference.
As Maternity patients generally have a low need for the support that volunteers are able to provide, roles are not available in this area.

Work Shadowing and Work Experience
Requests for work shadowing or work experience placements should be made directly to individual departments, as this is not part of the Volunteer Service.
