Volunteers

 

There is something special about people who freely give up their time to help others.

We have a band of volunteers who support patients, their families and hospital staff.

There are volunteer drivers who transport patients unable to access public transport or drive themselves to an appointment at the hospital. On average our drivers transport more than 30 patients a week.

General volunteers provide valuable support throughout the hospital. They're friendly faces offering books and magazines to patients, handing out meals to people undergoing chemotherapy or dialysis and supporting family members sitting with a patient in the Emergency Department. There are even volunteers who help maintain some of our equipment, like wheelchairs.

Some of our volunteers are retirees while others have a close connection to the hospital or just a desire to reach out to people in need.

Our volunteers contribute many skills and so much expertise to our service.

We're striving to provide a quality health service to the region and we're proud our community is part of that journey.

Neurology needs your help!

We don't want you to travel to Melbourne for healthcare if you don't have to. That's why we're working hard to provide our specialists with great facilities and the latest equipment.

 

Our neurology service is seeking your help to purchase EEG equipment to measure electricial activity in the brain. It can be used to diagnose conditions such as seizures, tumours or head injuries. You may be surprised to learn there is no permanent EEG machine in Gippsland. Let's change that!
