Halton Theatres Team Support Volunteer

Volunteers will play an integral part of the Theatres Support team working alongside staff in Stores and our Sterile Instrument Areas. Initially volunteers will be getting to know the department and its processes in preparing for surgery / theatre procedures. You will be introduced to the storage room that contains instruments and kits used for a variety of procedures.

A couple of hours once a week is all that we need for volunteers to give.

When supporting stocks the types of tasks you will be asked to help with will include:
Date checking,
stock rotation,
stock taking,
general housekeeping of shelving and storage areas,
receiving stock,
reporting deficits,
putting stock away.
Administration related to deliveries and collections

Great first session - lovely team. Spent time cleaning theatre supplies and checking sterile equipment for punctures ... Saving NHS time, must indirectly mean saving lives too!
