Volunteers perform countless tasks that add that extra special touch to a patient’s journey. They form part of an invaluable resource, making a significant contribution to the ability of Western Sydney Local Health District hospitals to meet an ongoing commitment of keeping people healthy.
Hundreds of hard working volunteers devote their time and talents to serve and assist staff, patients and visitors. By engaging in patient and client activities, volunteers are a link between the clinical and the nursing services, and together, form a holistic approach to the quality health care that people need.
Volunteers do this through the provision of support services directly to patients, clients and members of the community and through fundraising for special equipment purchases. There are also pastoral workers and visitors who provide spiritual comfort to those in need and community groups who visit on special occasions throughout the year.
