A recruitment day for volunteers at Northampton General Hospital is being held next month.

The event, which will take place on May 12, is the first of its kind to be held at the hospital.

A spokesperson for the NGH NHS Trust said: "The day will allow people from the local community who are interested in volunteering to come along and hear first-hand what it’s like to volunteer at NGH. It will also allow those who are interested to fast-track through the process with interviews and documents processed and signed on the day.

"Our volunteers are an invaluable part of the hospital team. Working with us in a volunteering role means you're playing a part in delivering the best possible care to our patients and their families, whether you're providing admin support in an office or working alongside our ward teams," the spokesperson said.

"The roles give you the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life. Whether it's our staff or our patients, there's never a dull moment when you're surrounded by people of all ages from all sorts of backgrounds. Volunteering in a hospital gives you an insight into other people's lives and so many of our volunteers say it's a real privilege."

There are currently three volunteering roles that are available to choose from, these are:

* Response

* Clinical

* Administration

Those who would like to attend the day will need to apply for the role first, you can find out more and apply at https://bit.ly/3gleYPW
