Volunteers play a vital role at the Macmillan Unit and in the community, supporting our team to provide the best possible care for our patients and their families. We have numerous volunteer roles which include 'patient contact' and 'no patient contact'.
I have the privilege of being the Volunteer Coordinator at the Macmillan Unit in Christchurch hospital. As at March 2016 we have 145 volunteers in a variety of different roles, both on and off the hospital site and whilst our existing vacancies are limited I pride myself in matching each volunteer to the right role for them and us, whilst meeting the needs of the unit.
We are an extremely happy team and enjoy working and socialising together. "What am I looking for when I receive an application?" A volunteer who is kind, flexible, compassionate and committed. Our staff rely on the support from their volunteer colleagues and therefore reliability is of paramount importance. The individual skills and interests each volunteer brings to the unit is valued and often fully utilised. Volunteers never know what they could be asked to help with!
If you would like more information about volunteering at the unit please contact me for an informal chat and a look around. Alternatively complete the online application form below.
