Job Description:

A hospital porter moves patients, equipment and numerous other medical paraphernalia between the various areas of a hospital.

Porters also provide emotional support to patients. They often have to comfort and reassure those who are feeling weak or distressed. Sometimes they also have to placate irritable or obstinate patients. The role is always varied and interesting though, as porters help people of different ages and from different walks of life daily.
