Volunteer to be a Mealtime Ward Helper

Community news on behalf of West Middlesex University Hospital | 12 April 2024

West Middlesex University Hospital is recruiting volunteers to support patients during mealtimes on their adult inpatient wards.

Volunteers will work alongside clinical staff to support patients with eating, chat with them, run errands for staff and patients and assist with other non-clinical tasks.

Research shows that patients recover quicker and can go home earlier if they eat and drink well during their hospital stay.

Mealtimes are a core part of care provided at the hospital, and this role helps to provide an important source of comfort to patients.

Shifts are from 11.30am to 1.30pm and 5 to 7.30pm on weekdays and weekends.

Being a Mealtime Ward Volunteer is a great opportunity to gain patient contact and insight into working in a hospital.

For more information and how to apply on the West Middlesex University Hospital website.
