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.

Tax Time - Focus on Falls

The end of the financial year is a time many people contribute to fundraising causes. You can donate online to our Focus on Falls Campaign as we raise money to purchase bed alarms for patients at risk of falling in our hospital. On average, one patient falls at LRH every day. We don't want it to be you or someone you love. Click on the Make A Donation link or contact LRH Fundraising on 5173 8577. Thank you for your kindness!
