If your application is successful, you will be invited to interview.

At interview, we take a copy of three pieces of ID to complete a DBS (Disclosure & Barring Services) application and discuss in further detail the role you have applied for and your motives for volunteering with us.

Contact referees

Two references will be taken up as soon as possible in order to minimise delays in the recruitment process. We advise that prospective volunteers inform their referees early to avoid delays.

DBS check

If successful, you will be asked to fill out a DBS form online.

Occupational health check

If successful, you will be invited to attend an occupational health screening appointment, and may need to have your immunisations updated.

You will then have a local induction with your named manager in the area of the hospital you will be volunteering. Once this has been completed, you will be ready to volunteer.
