Getting Involved

We’re at the heart of our community,  touching the lives of many people as patients, visitors, members, fundraisers, volunteers and staff.  We’d love you to get involved, and there are many ways you can support us:, including:

Annual Staff Awards

We invite our patients to nominate the staff member or team who has made a difference to them in our annual Staff Awards – find out more.

Patient feedback

Feedback helps us understand what we’re doing well and to make improvements where they’re needed – we value what you have to say, so please tell us what you think by giving us your views.

Volunteer with us

Our many volunteers and voluntary groups support us and enhance the experience of our patients.

They’re trained to assist appropriate patients at mealtimes, provide therapeutic massage, support patients with dementia and undertake specialist roles such as reading aloud, reminiscence, breast feeding support and music therapy.  For more information contact:  volunteers@nnuh.nhs.uk

Membership scheme

As an NHS Foundation Trust, more than 16,000 people have joined our membership scheme. They receive our magazine, The Pulse, are invited to talks on health topics and events such as our open day and fete, and give their views on health priorities and other issues.  For more information, visit the membership pages.

Hospitals Charity and fundraising

Every pound you give to us makes a real difference to our patients, their families and friends.

The Norfolk & Norwich University Hospitals Charity (1048170) raises money for a range of projects including care and treatment, education and extra patient services. It’s the umbrella charity for all our different funds which cover wards and departments.

The charity plays a vital role, including making hospital visits more pleasant for our patients and supporting us in providing better care. A large part of the charity involves raising funds for medical equipment – in the past it’s funded incubators, scanners, syringe drivers, comfortable chairs and artwork.

Your donations make a real difference, and you can choose a specific area to support if you wish.

Quality Assurance Audits

This Quality Assurance Audit programme involves unannounced ward and clinic inspections by teams of three in at least two areas every day across the hospitals’ wards and clinics. Comprising two senior nurses and an independent external representative from the community, the teams inspect standards of care, cleanliness, assistance with meals, medication and records.  For more information, contact communications@nnuh.nhs.uk
