Volunteers are a valued and essential part of the team at University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust. We have more than 600 volunteers working at the Trust with our staff to enhance patient services and care across our two sites. Volunteering is provided at UHCW through University Hospital Voluntary Services and UHCW Charity. At the Hospital of St Cross volunteering is provided through the Friends of the Hospital of St Cross and Rugby Hospital Radio.

No clinical or medical background is necessary and the only restriction is that you must be aged 16 or over (Friends of the Hospital of St Cross minimum age is 18). At the Trust we welcome and embrace diversity therefore your gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion/belief, age, social status, disability or any other characteristic you have will be viewed as a valuable asset for the Trust.
