Pharmacy Volunteers

What You'll Do: 

As a Pharmacy volunteer you'll be responsible for meeting and greeting patients, running through health questionaires and assisiting the Pharmacy team to prepare prescriptions. You'll also be on hand to help patients with any queries that they may have and to direct them to a member of the team. 

 

We are also looking for volunteers to assist as Pharmacy helpline volunteers where you'll be taking calls from patients, offering them advice and recording the information of their query/call. There will also be a need for some admin/clerical work to support the team. 

Why You'll Love It: 

As a Friends volunteer you'll be able to provide small, but kind actions that go a long way for those living with eye conditions/visual impairment. 

It'll give you a great sense of purpose and will give you experience and skills that can be transferred into any career path. 

What You'll Learn: 

You'll learn a lot including interpersonal skills, and if onsite will gain experience of a hospital-setting. 

What We're Looking For: 

We are looking for patient, calm and empathetic volunteers who are willing to support our patients.
