Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust is looking for experienced caring therapists to volunteer within their team at Wexham Park hospital. They offer complementary therapy to patients within the areas of elderly care, rehabilitation and patients with cancer. This is an exciting time to join their expanding service team as a volunteer.
 
Complementary therapies can make a significant difference to the wellbeing of their patients. They can provide a way to interact with patients, help reduce stress and anxiety, enable people to cope better with illness and pain control and relieve some of the symptoms or side effects of their treatments.

Volunteers will receive additional training focused on working with patients. Free parking and meal vouchers will also be provided to volunteers.

Please note that the following is required for them to be able to process your application as a volunteer:

  • To have studied and qualified in any one or more of the following: aromatherapy, massage reflexology or reiki at a recognised college/school (ITEC equivalent) and have been practicing your therapies for at least 2 years.
  • Registration with a professional body and insurance is also required.

Volunteers will be in contact with patients and as such will be subject to the Trusts DBS check and references will also be requested.

Please complete the application form and return to Michele.martin2@nhs.net no later than Thursday 31st January 2019.
