Register your interest to become a volunteer at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital is in Fulham. We recruit volunteers in recruitment rounds throughout the year. If you would like to volunteer, please complete the registration form to express your interest to become a volunteer. You will be contacted by email when we begin a recruitment round to tell you about the roles that we are recruiting to. 

There are three volunteer roles offered at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital:

Responder

This role involves you carrying out a variety of tasks around the hospital, including pharmacy runs, supporting patients to be discharged or with directions or helping with admin. The shifts run 9am–1pm or 1–5pm on weekdays only.

Ward Helper

This role is based on one of our adult inpatient wards. It is a befriending role that involves supporting patients during mealtimes, socialising with them, making teas and coffees and carrying out other tasks that support the patients and staff. The shifts run 11am–2pm or 5–8pm.

Best for You Volunteer Role

This volunteering role supports the Best for You youth mental health programme and supports staff, patients and friends and family on the paediatric wards at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. This role gives young people who may be struggling with their mental health someone to spend time with, talk to and engage with. Over time, this can help to create a strong relationship and gives our young patients someone they can be regularly supported by. This might involve chatting to the young person, listening, playing a therapeutic game together or supporting friends and family of patients. The shifts run initially Monday-Friday from 9am-1pm and 1pm-5pm but when volunteers have done a few shifts and are comfortable in the hospital then can move on to evening and weekend shifts. 

Email christina.fletcher7@nhs.net for further details. To register your interest to volunteer on the Best for You youth mental health programme please register your details.

If you are interested in these roles please submit your details—we will contact you when our next recruitment round opens.
