Volunteer with us

The smooth running of the hospitals would not be possible without the involvement of our wonderful volunteers. Our volunteers improve and enhance the patient experience, complementing the work of our employed staff across the Trust. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and represent the diversity of the communities we serve. They generously give their time to help the Trust provide excellent care and services on behalf of our patients, visitors and staff.

Over 350 people volunteer across Whiston, St Helens and Newton Community hospitals, helping in many ways such as visiting and spending time with patients, meeting and greeting, supporting hospital staff and assisting the spiritual care team.

We want to be the Trust of choice for volunteering because we offer a wide range of services across all of our hospitals, which provides more opportunities for our volunteers.

In June 2020 we were awarded The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service which is the highest accolade that volunteer groups can achieve in the UK.
