Do you want to be a PLACE volunteer?

We need two more volunteers to join our PLACE assessment team.

You’ll go into a local hospital as part of a team to assess how the environment supports patients’ privacy and dignity. You’ll also look at things like food, cleanliness and general building maintenance.

Our volunteers are given guidance on which areas to look at and how to rate the hospital, but you’ll also have a chance to input your own ideas.
