Our volunteers are a vital part of the team, and help us deliver the highest standards of healthcare. We simply could not operate as well as we do without them.
The Trust has an active volunteering community which continues to grow significantly. We currently have more than 450 people who give their time freely to help patients, staff and visitors and give something back to their local community, and we run regular recruitment drives for prospective volunteers.
On average, each volunteer donates four hours of their time each week – a total of 104,400 hours each year!
Volunteers from all cultures
We welcome volunteers from all abilities, backgrounds, cultures and beliefs – and are keen to hear from prospective volunteers.
Volunteers provide an invaluable service through a variety of support services and activities and make a huge difference to the care that our patients receive.
Our volunteers offer a tremendous contribution in support of patients and staff at Bradford Royal Infirmary, St Luke’s Hospital and at our community hospitals.
Do you know a hospital volunteer that goes the extra mile to help others? Would you like to help us give that person the recognition he or she deserves?
Once again, we are looking for a volunteer who stands out in their commitment to our hospitals; someone who generously gives their time to support our patients and staff – someone who deserves our Volunteer of the Year award in 2019!
We are very fortunate to have the support of more than 430 volunteers working across all wards and departments – they may be helping at BRI, St Luke’s or in one of our community hospitals.
They provide invaluable support and assistance, always putting the interests of our patients at the heart of everything they do – and it is often the little things that make such a big difference.
Voluntary Services Manager Jane Britton said: “There are many volunteer roles across the organisation. Volunteers offer their time to support our work and help in any way they can to improve the patient experience.
“We are now asking staff, visitors and fellow volunteers to nominate an individual who has gone above and beyond and who deserves the recognition and acknowledgement that the Volunteer of the Year award brings.”
Nominations take only a few moments – just click here for more information and the nomination form. Then please send the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org, by Friday, 23 August 2019. Thanks!
