Could you be a Meet & Greet Volunteer at

Musgrove Park Hospital?

We are looking for volunteers to offer a warm welcome to patients, relatives and visitors at the Main Entrances and other main waiting areas.

Meet and Greet Volunteers will also offer information about the hospital and assist to direct to various wards and departments. Our volunteers will happily escort and support those people who require a little extra help.

Hospitals can be a daunting and confusing place; a warm smile and an offer to help can make a huge difference.

Would you be willing to offer 2 – 3 hours per week?

If you are interested in finding out more please contact: Julie Foot, Patient Experience Coordinator 01823 343447 or email

We look forward to hearing from you.

Our values are simple: Outstanding Care, Working Together, Listening and Leading.

We recognise that our staff are our most valuable resource, we are proud of the excellent levels of service our Trust provides to our service users and the dedication and conscientious of our staff.
