Volunteering Opportunities Currently Active

RUH Welcome Volunteers

Welcome Volunteer’s base themselves at the main patient and visitor entrances to the hospital.  Their role is to greet patients and visitors to the hospital and provide directions and information about the hospital departments and services. 


Many visitors and patients may be unsure of the hospital environment, so the Welcome Volunteer provides a friendly and supportive introduction to the RUH.  Welcome volunteers are part of the RUH Reception function, so if there are any issues visitors and patients can be referred to the Main Reception desk.

Shifts are morning or afternoon, 5 days a week.
