Information about how you can volunteer at ESHT

At East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust we are very proud of the people who volunteer with us and the time and commitment they give to us.

Our volunteers come from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds and volunteer for many reasons, some to give something back to our hospitals, some for experience and many who enjoy being part of a team on a daily basis.

For students and jobseekers we can provide both experience and a working reference for you subject to a minimum commitment period of six months.

All our roles are subject to DBS (disclosure barring service) checks and references, the Volunteer Services teams at Conquest Hospital and Eastbourne DGH can guide you through this process if needed.

Our magazine (available from the volunteer offices / reception areas at our hospitals) gives a full description of what we look for in a volunteer, how to apply and what you can expect from being a volunteer at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust.
