The Macmillan cancer centre is a busy centre providing facilities for the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of cancer and non-cancer conditions alongside Macmillan support and information services for patients, their carer’s and families.

The outpatients department is one of the busiest areas of the hospital with multiple clinics running throughout the day. The volunteer role is about welcoming patients in to the department, making sure that they are checked in at the appropriate clinic and assisting them during waiting periods. It also involves gaining feedback from patients.

A minimum commitment of 1 morning or afternoon session per week is required.



Unfortunately, we are unable to take any students who are in the final year of the course, and ask that any students in their penultimate year start with us by the end of December. All volunteers must be aged over 18.
