Northumbria Volunteers

We have around 850 volunteers who tirelessly and generously give their time to services for patients and visitors.

They perform a range of important roles, from ‘meeting and greeting’ patients and visitors at our hospital entrances, serving customers in our Hospital Volunteer Service (HVS) shops, going around the wards with the sweet trolley and driving the buggy which transports patients and visitors around North Tyneside General Hospital. They may also help out with patients on the ward, facilitating activities to promote social interaction, providing assistance at mealtimes to those patients who need it and talking to stroke patients to aid their recovery by helping them practice and gain confidence.
