County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust is looking for
enthusiastic people to join a new team of 'Volunteer Response
Associate director of nursing, Jason Cram, explains, "We have
over 300 volunteers working in all kinds of roles, helping support
the delivery of the best possible patient care and
experience. They're an invaluable part of our team, providing
better outcomes for patient and help keep our services running
"Our Volunteer Response Porters will be based at either
Darlington Memorial Hospital or University Hospital of North Durham

quickly become essential in the day to day business of running our
busy hospitals. Becoming a Volunteer Response Porter will be

working within an NHS environment.
