Watch this space! Applications for specific volunteer roles will open at the end of July 2021 for a short time.

Here at The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust we have a team of over 600 dedicated volunteers who help us deliver an excellent patient experience.Keisha

Our volunteers are part of the Mid Yorks team and play a crucial role in enhancing the experience of patients, carers, visitors and staff. They do this by performing a wide variety of tasks throughout the Trust to complement the work of our paid staff. Volunteers are currently placed in approximately 60 departments throughout the Trust.

Although they do not perform any clinical roles, volunteers are able to get some hands on experience in a hospital environment and have a huge impact on our patient services and life in hospital.

As well as the difference they make to others, our volunteers often comment on the positive impact being a volunteer has made on their own lives, helping them to meet new friends and improve their self confidence and motivation, whilst keeping them active and feeling they have a valuable contribution to make which is greatly appreciated.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, a variety of different cultures, ethnicities and communities and are aged between 16 and 88. We are very proud to say that our longest serving volunteer has been with us for 36 years.
