Lorraine loving making patients smile

16 May 2018

Lorraine MacAulay is a familar face around the busy hallways of Logan Hospital’s Emergency Department.

The much loved St John Ambulance volunteer began working at Logan Hospital in 2005 and despite travelling from her home on the northside, still spends two days every week doing what she can to assist patients, visitors and staff.

Lorraine was instrumental in establishing St John volunteers as a service in the ED and said she also enjoyed volunteering at other organisations including St Vincent de Paul.

"I love talking to the patients, especially the kids, and making them laugh," she said.

"I would recommend volunteering to everyone. It’s so satisfying knowing that you are helping people on what might be one of their worst days and putting a smile on their face."
