Volunteering Opportunities


Volunteering opportunities with Enfield CCG

Enfield CCG is committed to planning and commissioning high quality services for local people and we are committed to engaging patients in this work. We are always looking for patients or carer volunteers that can help us to improve local services by feeding back their user experience.

This page will contain details of our latest voluntary opportunities.

You can also register to be a volunteer and be notified of upcoming opportunities by filling in the form on the right hand side of the page.

 

We’re looking for volunteers to join a patient reference group to improve local ophthalmology (eye) services

 

We want to invite patients/service user representatives to help us to transform local ophthalmology (eye) services. The role of the patient/user representatives is to speak on behalf of other patients and carers of the service. The Ophthamology Patient Reference Group (PRG) will meet every two weeks and will support this Transformation Programme to develop new pathways of care.  You can download a role description here.

We would also encourage you to fill in our patient survey about your experience of local NHS services for minor eye conditions, cataracts or glaucoma.

If you have any questions about this survey, if you need this survey in another accessible format, or if you would like to get involved in the Ophthalmology Patient Reference Group, please contact enfccg.communications@nhs.net

 

 

NHS 70 - Join the NHS volunteer team 

Volunteers of all ages and backgrounds make a huge and often unseen contribution to the health and wellbeing of the nation, giving their time, skills and expertise to support the NHS, charities, faith and belief groups and their own communities.  Why not join them and give the NHS a special 70th birthday present?

Volunteering in health and care is a rewarding way to use your spare time.  As well as helping the NHS to enhance the experience patients receive, you can gain new skills, make new friends and improve your own health and wellbeing.

Volunteering opportunities vary greatly, from befriending patients on a ward to being a first responder with an ambulance service, fundraising for an NHS charity or being a peer supporter for a health charity. You could also be a hospital radio DJ, contribute to advisory groups or help with programmes in your local community.

People of any background can find rewarding and challenging opportunities which reflect their availability, ambitions and passions – and make a genuine difference to people’s lives.

To learn about volunteering opportunities in your local NHS, as well as other health and care organisations that support the NHS, visit www.do-it.org.  Alternatively, you can contact your local NHS trust.

The NHS UK website includes more information about volunteering.
