Volunteer Health Declaration
The purpose of the health declaration is to see if you have any health problems that could affect your ability to safely and effectively undertake the duties of the volunteer role you are conducting.
If you answer “no” to this question no further action will be taken and this declaration will remain on your personal file to confirm that you do not have any relevant health problems on commencement of your volunteer role.
If you answer “yes” to this question further discussion will be necessary to find out more information regarding the nature of your health condition and whether or not it might affect your volunteer role. All efforts will be made by the hospice to fairly and openly assess the impact your declared health condition might have upon both your performance of your volunteer role and the service that we provide to our patients and their families and carers. Advice and guidance may be sought from the hospice occupational health service or from your General Practitioner (with your prior permission). All information provided will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Completion of the form is mandatory and is a requirement of the hospice’s registration with the Care Quality Commission. If you choose not to complete the form the Hospice will not be able to process your application to become a volunteer in the role specified above but we may be able to offer you a different volunteer role subject to such a role being available.
It is your responsibility to inform your manager about any changes to your health conditions which might affect your ability to perform your volunteer role.
