Around 400 people give their time and commitment as volunteers to a wide range of services and initiatives throughout NHS Lanarkshire.
These volunteers make an invaluable contribution to the level of care and service patients receive. What can I do? Use the links on the left of this page for a description of some volunteering roles with NHS Lanarkshire.
People get involved for a variety of different reasons – whether it’s because they have used a service or just want to help a particular project or even individual.
As well as helping others, volunteering also provides an opportunity to gain new skills and experience such as:
- work experience
- personal development
- learn from and be supported by staff
- increase your knowledge of health
- participate in a wider social life
- access relevant training
NHS Lanarkshire provides support to ensure volunteers receive the training and help they need to do the work they do.
NHS Lanarkshire has been recognised for excellence in volunteering by receiving the Investing in Volunteers (IiV) UK award – a prestigious accreditation mark for excellence in volunteering.
