Organisation: Frome Community Hospital
Location: Frome Community Hospital, Enos Way, Frome, Somerset, BA11 2FH
Type: Part Time
This is a flexible opportunity, however we would ask you advise when you are available to come in.


One of the most social ways to volunteer is to come in and talk to the patients. This can be in their room or in the day room, and at any time of day. Sometimes all someone wants is to have a good natter!
