Welcome to Volunteering at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.


At Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust we have a team of dedicated volunteers who help us deliver the best in care to our patients. Our volunteers are part of our team and complement the work of our paid staff to enhance the experience of patients, carers, visitors and staff. They have a huge impact on our patient services, supporting staff by doing the little things that make a difference.

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

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, a variety of different cultures, ethnicities and communities and ages.
