Volunteer at Cessnock Hospital

Health Regular - more than 6 months Cessnock NSW

About this opportunity

Cessnock Hospital is set high on the hill off View Street and is the Lower Hunter Sector specialist for helping patients and their carers with acute care needed. Cessnock Hospital provides a very busy Emergency Department, Day Surgery, and Medical Services to patients from the surrounding areas.

if you'd like to help with meet and greet and some general patient and carer comfort we'd like to hear from you. You could work as little as one day a week but you'd be making a huge difference to the people who work onsite or visit with clients.

You must be willing to have annual influenza vaccinations a to keep you safe and ensure our staff and patients are safe. A private meeting with staff health will be arranged to give you all the requirements.
