If you’re looking for a challenging role that offers enormous personal satisfaction, you’ve come to the right place. NHSBT collects blood from donors which is used by every NHS Trust in England and North Wales. We’d like you to help us.
By joining us, you’ll have chosen to become part of a team that enables people in need to benefit from life-saving operations and treatments. This is a chance to save and improve patient’s lives – and perhaps improve yours!
Each person on an NHSBT blood donation session plays an equally important role, whether a donor carer, a specialist nurse, a driver or a volunteer. A single thread unites and connects us all – our vital role in making sure the precious donations we receive from the public continue to save and improve lives.
Main Role Purpose for NHSBT volunteers
The role of volunteers on blood donation sessions is to help us make things better for donors who come to donate by undertaking the three main activities described below.
· We will need you to help our staff manage queues as donors come into session.
· We will train you to assist with the booking of future appointments for donors who have donated and to thank them for donating as you serve them with refreshments.
· It is essential that you help us provide a professional, caring and customer focused service to our donors at our sessions.
Volunteer staff are not allowed or expected to be involved in any of the clinical aspects of care such as putting needles in, screening donors, First Aid or any other clinical activity. You will be supported by, and under the supervision of, NHSBT staff at all times. You will never be asked to and must never supervise children or be left unattended with any children that may have accompanied somebody to the session.
