As a Health and Wellbeing volunteer you will be part of an inspired, connected and mobilised network of people offering practical support to our staff.  This includes support running of wellbeing hub/stations and providing general support to our people, actively promoting our Trust-wide Health and Wellbeing resources and support available and guiding them to these resources.

• An exciting opportunity to be part of an innovative service that will make a real difference to our great people providing great care.

• Agreed and reasonable out-of-pocket expenses
