If you are a health care professional and would like use your skills during your free time to the benefit and enjoyment of others, we welcome you to join Healthpoint volunteers.

Healthpoints provide free health counselling, blood pressure measurements and psychological support. Other activities that volunteers can participate in include organising lectures or themed evenings or leading various groups, for instance.

Volunteers are responsible for all Healthpoint activities. Volunteers are required to be health care professionals.

These activities are well suited for retired professionals who want to maintain their valuable expertise and at the same time help others, for instance. For those in working life, Healthpoints offer a good opportunity to meet people in a relaxed atmosphere and help them feel better.

Most Healthpoints are open at least once a month and at most once a week. You can decide yourself how much time you want to devote to Healthpoint activities.

How can I become a Healthpoint volunteer?
If you became interested in Healthpoints, contact the nearest Red Cross branch. If they already have a Healthpoint, they will provide you with information about its location and opening hours. However, not all branches have a Healthpoint. It may well be that they are still waiting for enthusiastic volunteers to join in. So, do not hesitate to contact us!

Send us message through our Facebook pages (inbox) if you use Facebook. If you don't use Facebook, please contact Quynh Ly.
