Our hospital volunteers add a personal touch and have a love for helping others

Our volunteers provide patients with a personal touch whilst working side by side with our staff.

They enhance the spirit within our hospitals and work hard to help make people’s hospital stay more comfortable and less stressful.

Their smiling faces add colour and vibrancy to our hospital culture.

Our volunteers

While our volunteers come from a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences, they all have three things in common: a desire to be useful in their community, to help others in need and to make a difference.
