Royal Brompton & Harefield - Social Distancing Ambassador

Details of the Charity:

We are the largest specialist heart and lung centre in the UK and among the largest in Europe. We work from two main sites: 

  • Royal Brompton Hospital in Chelsea, West London
  • Harefield Hospital near Uxbridge

The Trust is a partnership of these specialist hospitals which are known throughout the world for their expertise, standard of care and research success

Details of the Volunteering Opportunity:

This role is for those who don’t mind walking around as there are three areas that need to be checked regularly to ensure that people are maintaining the 2m distance from each other.

The three areas are all close to each other and form a triangle of sorts. Essentially you would be moving between the hospital’s main reception, the staff canteen and the location to the right of the canteen where an initiative is being run called ‘Project Wingman’. These are staff from the airline industry who have a created a first-class support lounge for people to visit. It is part of a wider staff wellbeing programme.

This role is available immediately and is on-going. We are looking to fill a rota until the end of August in the first instance. Any help you could provide would be most welcome.

Skills Required:

  • Act with honesty and integrity at all times
  • Demonstrate respect for others and value diversity
  • Act as ambassadors for their directorate and the Trust
  • Be aware of the impact of their own behaviour on others
  • Be discreet and aware of issues requiring confidentiality 



Additional Benefits:

  • Volunteering opportunity to support the community throughout a global pandemic- COVID-19.
  • Hours volunteered will be recorded on your HEAR – which goes on your permanent university record
  • All hours contribute towards your Brunel Volunteers Award, which may lead to an invitation to the Brunel Volunteers Award Ceremony in May
  • We are hoping to provide t-shirts to help support your role making it clear that you are a socially distancing ambassador
