CURRENT VACANCIES

Volunteer Student Placement: Ongoing

Job Overview

During the COVID-19 crisis, we have had to make the difficult decision to temporarily suspend our drop-in clinic service, however, we have continued to support people through the advice line and remote GP consultations.

When a service user calls, we check whether they are aware of the current COVID-19 guidance, screen for symptoms, and ensure they have access to information on COVID-19 in community languages. We’ve continued to provide support to those people who presented with other health issues or required help to access antenatal care, terminations, mental health support, inhalers, to register with GPs, and more.

Our services are staffed by volunteer support workers, caseworkers, nurses, and doctors. These volunteers provide a highly empathetic and practical service to our service users, making a real difference to people’s lives.

Our effective, committed and enthusiastic team is looking to incorporate new volunteers. If you are passionate about access to healthcare and enjoy working in a team on often complex and challenging cases, then you should consider becoming a Doctors of the World volunteer!

Those with lived experience of migration, the asylum system, homelessness or exclusion from health services are encouraged to apply.
