The NSLHD Volunteer Project places volunteers into a broad range of roles in clinical, allied health and administrative environments.
For all volunteer enquiries, please email
firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name, phone number and email address.
Volunteers are asked to commit to at least one four-hour shift either weekly or fortnightly for a minimum of six months.
There are a number of volunteer programs at the hospital, which include the following types of work:
- Patient contact
- Customer service
We try to match our applicants with their preferred role, however this is not always possible.
Following the waiting period, if you are over 18, we will:
- Send you an application pack to complete to return on interview
- Apply for a criminal record check, in accordance with NSW Ministry of Health Policy
- Invite you to attend the next scheduled orientation day
- Obtain personal reference checks in writing
Once these steps are completed, we will contact you about your proposed placement.
