Being part of the NHS means we are an important part of the
local community. We rely on the support, goodwill and
generosity of local people to help us provide high quality patient
care. There are many ways you can get involved with us either
at the Great Western Hospital, in our Community Hospitals or
through our other facilities.

We have hundreds of dedicated volunteers who work for the Trust
and help our staff deliver care to patients and service
users. Whether that is supporting mealtimes on wards, helping
people find their way in hospital or supporting our staff in other
ways they form an important part of the hospital and we are
grateful for the support they provide.
We have volunteers from 17 years old all the way up to
volunteers in their 80's and welcome interest from anyone who might
be interested in learning new skills, or using their experience to
benefit the Trust by becoming a volunteer. Some of our
volunteers work a a few hours a month whilst others much more - if
you are interested in becoming a volunteer call our Voluntary
Services Office on 01793 605247 and we would be happy to
discuss how you can help.
