Health service volunteers thanked for their enormous contribution

The many volunteers who contribute to the Far West Local Health District will be recognised and thanked at a special morning tea at the Broken Hill Health Service on Wednesday, 1 May 2019

The celebration is part of NSW Health Volunteers Appreciation Day which acknowledges the many volunteers who generously give their time, knowledge and life experiences to support health services across the State.

The Broken Hill Health Service will be hosting a special appreciation morning tea for volunteers at the hospital on Wednesday, 1 May 2019 from 10.30am to 11.30am.

The morning tea will bring together volunteers who help out the organisation and the wider community in a variety of ways. They include the Hospital Kiosk volunteers, those who assist the staff at the Mental Health Inpatient Unit and Carers Groups, the Artist in Residence, the Dementia/Delirium & Palliative Care volunteers, the Tai Chi Leaders, the Patient Family Support Staff volunteers, our co-located volunteers from Telecross Red Cross, Broken Hill Women’s Auxiliary RFDS Hospital visitor Mrs Pam Lord and local club volunteers from the Working Men’s club who visit fellow club members who are patients in the hospital. The morning tea also includes the Broken Hill Health Council who play a valuable role in consumer participation and engagement.

Broken Hill Health Service General Manager, Mr Ken Barnett, said the morning tea was in appreciation to the volunteers for their enormous contribution in their respective areas.

“Our volunteers continue to make a positive influence in the health service, from the patients they have direct contact with and their families and carers, to the staff they help. The work they do can often go unnoticed by the general public but we know what an enormous contribution they make and this is one small way we can say a heartfelt thank you,” said Mr Barnet.
