Volunteer Porters

Volunteer porters play an important role in daily scheduled care operations. We have an established team of 30 volunteers to meet our scheduled crews and convey patients from our vehicles to their point of clinical care and return to the vehicles.

Being a volunteer porter is an excellent way to meet new people and gain experience of working within an Ambulance Service and NHS environment before applying for permanent employment.

  • Wansbeck Hospital
