THE SIGN-UP DATE ON THIS LISTING SHOULD BE IGNORED. (see below)

GoodGym were asked to get involved with Nancy Whiskin and her team at Barts Volunteers at the start of the year.

Over the past few weeks, GoodGym members have enjoyed a variety of tasks, both within the hospital environment and at the Vaccination Centre at Newham's ExCel.

Activity may include taking staff meals from the canteen up to the outside of the wards; manning the (glass-fronted) visitors' desk; running patient belongings left by friends and relatives up to the wards; overseeing the rollout of the new staff wellbeing centres...

There are many roles which will include high levels of physical activity for GoodGymers.

SIGN-UP PROCESS AND DATES

  • This is a rolling Community Mission - you pick your preferred dates and times when you sign up via the link below. THE SIGN-UP DATE ON THIS LISTING SHOULD BE IGNORED.

  • Ignore any automated GoodGym confirmation email you receive confirming the date on this listing.

  • Your sign-up will take place externally, here, directly with Barts Volunteers.

  • If the sign-up is temporarily closed when you click through, please check back again soon. Any issues with this, contact laura@goodgym.org

When you're signing up directly with Barts, please note:

  • GoodGym applications must be marked clearly, as we will be treated as a separate group when being processed online.

  • In due course, we will have our own dropdown box on sign-up under the question, "Are you from another organisation?" But for now, please make it clear on your application you're from GoodGym.

Health and safety

  • There are stringent processes in place at all of the Trust's venues to keep volunteers safe.

  • You will not be in contact with any patients or visiting any wards.

  • You will be taken through a full risk assessment at your first visit.

Hi Anwar, you may be able to access the hospital via Milward Street. Did Barts Volunteers give you exact meeting point, however, along with directions on sign-up?

Hi Anwar, I have just responded to your email. This sign-up takes place directly with the Barts Volunteers: this date does not apply to this activity (it's just to enable us to list as current activity). I do apologise if you've had a wasted trip.

Hi Natasha, so sorry you've had a wasted trip and this wasn't clear. We will try to change the system and the listing here, so this doesn't happen again. In the meantime, big apologies that you set aside time for the task and travel today.
