We recognise and value the important role our volunteers play in supporting us to provide quality health care and to improve the health outcomes for our communities.
As a volunteer you can be involved in many ways with activities that may include assisting at kiosks, patient support, raising funds, being a community exercise leader, gardening and art projects to name a few.
The type of activity you can assist with will depend on the needs of your local health facility.
To become a volunteer you will need to complete an application form and have the required screening processes necessary for the particular activity or group you would like to participate in.
Please contact the Health Service Manager at your local health service to find out more.
