Volunteering at Princess Alexandra Hospital

Hello, and welcome to our community. At our hospital we recognise that all individuals are caregivers and have the ability to influence the experience of patients and families. We offer a variety of volunteer opportunities that are aligned to the person-centred care philosophy of our health care service. We are proud to offer volunteer programs that complement the work of paid staff and compassionate and caring interactions are at the heart of everything we do. We embrace the cultural diversity of our community and we encourage people from all cultural backgrounds to become involved.

The dynamic nature of volunteer involvement at our hospital means we are regularly reviewing our roster and recruitment needs and we welcome your interest in finding out more about what we do and becoming part of our community.

Are our opportunities right for you?

Here are a few questions you might like to consider:

Visiting volunteer groups

There are also many community sector support organisations who are engaged in delivering various volunteer programs and services at our hospital. Their services are generally managed by the separate clinical divisions and departmental staff, except when a group is providing facility wide services and then they are managed by the Volunteer Services Unit.
