Volunteers are here to enhance the patient experience, and volunteering at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust gives you the chance to make our environment a little friendlier and more comfortable for our patients, relatives and visitors.

We ask our volunteers to offer a regular commitment to their role and in return, we provide an exciting opportunity to meet people, learn new skills and most importantly, make a difference to people's lives.  

Please note: The Volunteer Services do not manage Work Experience queries or applications. For more information please see this page or check the “Work observation” link on the left side of this webpage. Thank you.
