Thank you to our volunteers

Volunteers working across Northern Sydney Local Health District hospitals have been celebrated and their huge contribution recognised this month during National Volunteers Week. 

The COVID-19 restrictions meant our volunteers were unable to work in our hospitals for extended periods since the beginning of the pandemic. 

Chief Executive Deb Willcox said it is wonderful to see so many volunteers back in our hospitals, supporting our staff and our patients, after what was such a disruptive and difficult year.

Our volunteers play such an important role in our hospitals including greeting our visitors and helping them get to where they need to go, helping our patients eat their meals, through to the Pink Ladies and their delicious cake stalls.

“They are a familiar face to our staff, patient and visitors who are comforted their presence.”

Ceremonies were held at Royal North Shore, Hornsby and Ryde hospitals to honour volunteers dedicating their time across Northern Sydney.
