Trolley Services

Hospital Trolleys from Royal Voluntary Service
Royal Voluntary Service hospital Trolley Service volunteers provide great customer service on the move, taking trolleys loaded with reading materials, healthy refreshments, treats, toiletries and other essentials around hospital wards. They make time to stop and chat with patients, helping ease the anxiety and sometimes loneliness experienced during a hospital stay, particularly by older people.

Profits from sales in our Hospital Shops, Cafés and Trolleys help fund our work supporting the NHS.

Thanks to generous support from funds raised by players of People’s Postcode Lottery, we are expanding our iconic Hospital Trolley Services to reach more patients in more wards, more often.
