Volunteering

Information about how you can volunteer at East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust

We have a wide range of volunteering opportunities and you don’t need previous experience in a health setting to volunteer for us.

We understand that while some volunteers enjoy being with our patients, others would prefer a different sort of role. Whatever your previous experience, we’d love to hear from you.

Our volunteers are involved in all kinds of tasks

  • Chat and interact with activities with our inpatients
  • Drive around East Sussex delivering medication for our cancer patients
  • Look after our hospital courtyards and gardens
  • Usher staff in our vaccination hubs
  • Offer fresh drinks to staff and patients
  • Telephone support for our discharged patients and sign post to local community support services
  • Meet and greet visitors and patients at our hospital reception areas
  • Use tablets to ask for feedback on our Trust services

Welcome to the team

The main volunteering activity is at Conquest Hospital, Eastbourne DGH and Bexhill and Rye community hospitals.

  • Our volunteering roles are designed to make maximum impact on the wellbeing of our patients and staff
  • We’re a welcoming, friendly team always looking for new volunteers to join us
  • Volunteering is a wonderful way to give a little of your time each week to help your local community
