Would you like to become more involved with the hub? Do you want to make a difference to patient safety? If so, we are looking for volunteers to give a minimum of 4 hours a month to source and upload content to the hub and our Instagram account.
This role would suit someone who is looking to work in the patient safety area or to work for a charity, or someone looking for experience in digital communications or content management. You don’t necessarily need a clinical background, although if you have then that’s great.
"I enjoy volunteering for the hub because it allows me to explore different interesting healthcare issues through writing original blogs, as well as uploading existing content to the website. I’ve learnt so much through my reading and research of topics as diverse as maternal care to men’s health to needlestick injuries. I’ve always had an interest in healthcare and public engagement, and it feels important to me to contribute to an organisation that is passionate about patient care and safety, after being a patient myself for many years. I'd recommend volunteering with the hub to anyone who has some free time to do something that is interesting, rewarding and worthwhile." Becky, hub volunteer
