Visiting update

From 1 January 2022, we have taken the difficult decision to suspend adult in-patient visiting in order to help protect our vulnerable patients. Please visit here for more information. 

Patient appointments

As we continue to see a rise in our urgent care admissions, a surge in admissions of Covid positive patients, and workforce shortages created by Covid isolation, some appointments for planned care may need to be delayed.

We will continue to prioritise urgent and emergency care and cancer treatments and we will do everything we can to avoid delaying care. If we need to take the difficult decision to delay appointments, we will contact affected patients directly to let them know. 

If you do not hear from us, please attend as requested in your appointment letter.

Contact the Voluntary Services Team
After you have decided which site you would like to volunteer at please contact the Voluntary Services Team at either King's Mill, Newark or Mansfield Community Hospitals.

Application Form
The Voluntary Services Team will send you an application form to complete and return. You will be contacted to discuss your application and may be asked to meet  a volunteer co-ordinator.

The final step would be to attend a volunteer induction. All volunteers must attend an induction before they can start work. You will be joined by other new volunteers and the session will last approximately two hours.  At the induction you will hear more about the role and responsibilities of a volunteer, including infection prevention and control and fire and security procedures.

First day
A member of the Voluntary Services team will inform you of your first day and will meet you on arrival to introduce you to your colleagues.
