RLB Volunteer Service

Within our Trust we have a diverse, ever growing team of volunteers.

Volunteers provide a wide range of complementary services to staff and patients across the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust.

Examples of the services we provide are listed below:

Ward/clinic based volunteers; welcome volunteers; expert patients; palliative care volunteers; MacMillan Cancer Support Service volunteers; complimentary therapy volunteers; fundraisers; chaplaincy volunteers.

Volunteers may also be asked to act in educational films and role play as patients for doctors’ exams.

We are now entering an exciting phase developing and extending the Volunteer Service.

In preparation for our move into our new Hospital in 2018, we are currently looking to recruit a further 250 ward based volunteers to complement and enhance the compassionate patient-centred care delivered by our clinical teams.


  • Are you aged over 18?
  • Could you spare a minimum of 3 hours per week?
  • Could you volunteer for at least 6 months?

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 in contact with.

If so, head over to our jobs page and apply online now, it is on this page you will find full role descriptions and role boundaries for ward volunteers.
