Volunteers & Non-Clinical Staff

Welcome to the Isle of Wight NHS Trust, thank you for joining the Trust at this difficult time. We really appreciate you being here.

Please see below for the list of learning resources, whilst this list looks long many of these links are short videos and/or reading to prepare you for clinical practice during Covid-19.

In the meantime you can email queries to

Volunteers and Non-Clinical staff supporting us in clinical practice have been split in to two roles. This is to ensure that staff have the opportunity to choose whichever role suits them best.

Role 1: Is about providing practical support with things like answering telephones, administration tasks, general housekeeping and making tea! Uniform for Role 1 will be an olive green polo shirt and black trousers.  When you are notified of deployment please visit the sewing room to collect uniform.

Role 2: Is about supporting our patients with their basic care needs like eating and drinking, washing and dressing. The e-Learning detailed below will give you an understanding of these aspects of care however you are going to be learning the practical elements on the ward. You will not be working alone, and you can always ask questions, make sure that you only undertake aspects of care that you are confident and competant to do.
Uniform for Role 2 will be a gold coloured polo shirt and black trousers. When you are notified of deployment please visit the sewing room to collect uniform
