Role of the Month

This month we are focusing on supporting our Emergency Department as we move into Winter.

Would you enjoy being part of a busy team, while supporting with the patient journey?

Emergency Department Welcomer

As the Emergency Department at East Cheshire NHS Trust becomes busier, we are looking for confident, compassionate people to join the team as the first point of contact for anyone entering the area.

  • Are you interested in providing a warm welcome to people?
  • Do you have good communication skills?
  • Are you patient in your interactions with people?

If so, we would love to hear from you!

We are looking for people to provide a half day session in a meet and greet role in our Emergency Department. Based at the entrance, your role will be to welcome people, establish their destination and signpost as appropriate.

Many people will require directing back out to the correct department, others will require signposting on to triage. You may be supporting people who use wheelchairs to reach their destination, you will be maintaining a tidy area and communicating with patients as needed.

We are looking for people throughout the week and are planning a half day session per volunteer. This is a new role which will have a positive impact on patient flow through the hospital.

All applicants for this role must be 18 years old or above.
