Why volunteer?

You can make a significant contribution by engaging in patient, client, staff and community activities. Volunteers help link patients and clients to the clinical and nursing services. This link helps create a holistic approach to the quality healthcare that people need.

Anyone over the age of 18 can volunteer their time and talents at Blacktown Mount Druitt Hospitals.

Your life experiences can help with support services for patients, clients, staff and members of the community.

As a volunteer you can also help us fundraise for special equipment purchases.
