Volunteer at Kurri Kurri Hospital

Health Regular - more than 6 months Kurri Kurri NSW

About this opportunity

Kurri Kurri Hospital is set high on the hill off Hospital Road and is the Lower Hunter Sector rehabilitation specialist. The hospital also provides an Emergency Department, Day Surgery, Day Care (Respite) and Medical Services to patients from Kurri Kurri and surrounds.

With such a busy workload and no nearby shop the volunteers are keen to reopen the cafe that has been closed most of the year.

if you'd like to help bring the cafe to life at 'Pinkies Care' you could work as little as one day a week but you'd be making a huge difference to the people who work onsite, visit patients or work nearby at the Masonic Centre.

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.
