Our team of dedicated volunteers provide an invaluable service to our patients and we have more than 500 working across Scunthorpe and Grimsby hospitals.


Volunteers help out in a number of ways from:

  • Meeting and greeting patients and visitors, directing them to their ward or department
  • Helping out on the wards, in outpatients and our emergency departments
  • Working for hospital radio.

How to volunteer

You must be at least 17-years-old to offer your services as a volunteer. Trust volunteers are selected very carefully from the many applicants who apply each year.

All volunteers undergo:

  • Enhanced Criminal Records Bureau (CRB) check
  • A Medical assessment by the occupational health department
  • An interview with the voluntary services manager.

Volunteers are always seen to complement the work of paid staff, and are never used as a substitute.
