Volunteers are being sought to help out at the new £90million West Cumberland Hospital when it opens this autumn.
North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust is holding a recruitment drive next month to encourage people to find out more about what being a volunteer involves.
Volunteer roles are varied but the Trust is especially looking for approachable people to meet patients and visitors when they enter the hospital, answer queries and be a welcoming face.
The volunteers’ recruitment drive takes place from Tuesday 2 to Friday 5 June 2015 to coincide with Volunteers’ Week 2015, which runs from 1 to 7 June.
Volunteers from across North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust have also been invited to events held in both Whitehaven and Carlisle next month to meet volunteers from other departments and celebrate the contribution they make.
Anyone interested in volunteering at West Cumberland Hospital and booking a place on the recruitment event to find out more should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01228 814567.
