Volunteers at UHB


Here at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) we have a team of dedicated volunteers who help us deliver the best in care to our patients at each of our hospitals:

  • Good Hope Hospital
  • Heartlands Hospital
  • Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham
  • Solihull Hospital

Our volunteers are part of the team and complement the work of our paid staff to enhance the experience of patients, carers, visitors and staff. They have a huge impact on our patient services, supporting staff by doing the little things that make a difference.

As well as the difference they make to others, our volunteers often comment on the positive impact being a volunteer has made on their lives. It has helped them to meet new friends, improve their self confidence and motivation, whilst keeping them active and feeling that they have a valuable contribution to make that is greatly appreciated.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life, a variety of different cultures, ethnicities and communities aged between 18 and 88. We are very proud to say that our longest serving volunteer has been with us for 45 years.

Do you have what it takes to be a UHB volunteer and make a difference to patients?

Thanks for your interest in becoming a volunteer at UHB.

To be a successful volunteer you have to want to volunteer for the right reasons, not because someone has told you to do it, or because you would like to use it to enhance personal development and experience.

Please note that we do not offer work experience, placements, shadowing or any clinical involvement.
