Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Trust
This role is currently only available for those interested in volunteering in the Emergency department at Queens Hospital or King George Hospital.
When people attend hospital they are often worried and finding their clinic location can be difficult. Both Queen’s Hospital and King George Hospital are busy environments, with long corridors or zoned areas which for many can be confusing.
Our wayfinder concierge supports the main entrance and the entrances/exits to wards and departments with a friendly welcoming face. Wayfinder concierge volunteers welcome visitors and patients, with a friendly greeting, asking how you may help. You will signpost visitors to other services, provide information on things such as car parking, ensuring adherence to PPE and social distancing regulations whilst offering companionship. You may escort visitors or patients to wards or clinics, in particular those who may need assistance walking or accessing the lifts.
