Call for volunteers to help Mildmay Hospital

Mildmay Hospital needs volunteers during this time of National Emergency


We are now admitting patients with acute HIV-related conditions, as well as both HIV and homeless COVID-19 patients that are recovering and no longer infectious, so we are urgently looking for volunteers to support our staff and patients during this critical time.

Volunteers have always been central to Mildmay, giving their time, skills and expertise freely in support of our work.

We need volunteers:

  • for one-to-one chats with our patients – befriending (while complying with social-distancing recommendations)
  • to collect essential items from pharmacies and acute hospitals
  • to support our Estate and Facilities team.

 

If you have the ability to travel, maintain confidentiality and have had a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check done in the last year, please contact us on: volunteer.coordinator@mildmay.org or personnel@mildmay.org.

 

Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said:

In these extraordinary times, it’s essential that we all pull together as part of the national effort to protect the most vulnerable, reduce pressures on our NHS and care system and save lives… Your help has the potential to make a real difference to some of those most affected by this outbreak… I am immensely proud of how the whole country is coming together to help one another – we must continue to listen to and live by the latest medical and scientific advice and through this national effort we can truly make a difference.
