Could you be Beaudesert Hospital's newest volunteer?

18 January 2023

Our dedicated team of volunteers at Beaudesert Hospital is seeking new recruits to influence the experience of patients and families who access our service. 
 
For more than 60 years, the Beaudesert Hospital Auxiliary Volunteers have had an immeasurable impact on our hospital community, providing countless hours of their time to run the hospital kiosk. 
 
Auxiliary President Pat Burnett said the kiosk currently operated four days per week but adding additional volunteers to the team could see this return to five days. 
 
Ms Burnett said the role of a volunteer at Beaudesert Hospital was dynamic and exciting with her favourite thing being a part of a dedicated team which serves both the public and the staff.
 
“Working the kiosk gives us a chance to give back to the community,” she said. 
 
“It’s a lovely feeling to be a part of a team where compassion and caring interactions are at the heart of everything we do, and of course there’s the added bonus of raising money to donate to the staff wish list of items needed in the hospital.”
 
Ms Burnett encouraged people from all walks of life to register their interest in becoming a volunteer and said there was no such thing as a ‘typical volunteer’.
 
“Some people volunteer during high-school or university to gain exposure to different health care professions, while others join us on retirement for social interaction and a challenge, “she said. 
 
If you are interested in experiencing the many benefits of volunteering, and have a warm and compassionate nature, please register your interest using the details below.
