Ward Helper

We would like to thank the Volunteering teams at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust for sharing with us the descriptions for this specific role. Please note:

  • This is only an example, which can be edited for your Trust’s need.
  • The role is being tested at Chelsea and Westminister and West Middlesex in one ward initially before being scaled further. The results have been very positive so far.
  • This job role will be updated periodically as the learning grows. This version of the role is captured on 24 April 2020, one week after the trial at Chelsea and Westminister Hospital NHS Foundation Trst started, where they allowed volunteers to support on COVID-19 wards.
