RLB Volunteer Service


Within our Trust we have a diverse, ever growing team of volunteers who provide a wide range of complementary services to staff and patients across the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Applicants need to demonstrate a sense of maturity as well as compassion for others and a willingness to make a difference to each and every person they come into contact with. Volunteers at the Trust will be expected to help promote equality and diversity in the workplace and support other multi-disciplinary teams throughout the organisation.

Below are some examples of the kinds of roles volunteers play in our Trust.



Recruiting radio volunteers

We are looking to recruit volunteer radio broadcasters for the Radio Broadgreen Service which supports patients and visitors at the Broadgreen site.

The volunteer broadcaster is a key role in the organisation, providing the first impression of the Trust and offering an essential and valued service:

  • The key responsibility for volunteer broadcasters is to broadcast radio programming at a high standard, providing a consistent and regular commitment to the service.
  • Volunteer broadcasters must always support the charity as per its constitution and adhere to the charity’s rules and regulations and those of the hospital Trust.
  • Volunteer broadcasters must provide radio programmes appropriate to LHBS/Radio Broadgreen guidelines.
  • Volunteer broadcasters must always adhere to OFCOM broadcast guidelines.
  • Volunteer broadcasters must work collaboratively with other members of the team and support other staff as/when required.
  • Volunteer broadcasters must provide fundraising support as/when required.
