Volunteers are an integral part of MDHS who assist in many areas of the health service and make an enormous contribution to the organisation. MDHS is grateful for the wealth of knowledge, skills and time volunteers share to enhance service delivery within the health service.
There are currently over 100 volunteers at MDHS, including Hospital Auxiliary members, working regularly at each campus of MDHS, ably assisting lifestyle coordinators within Residential Aged Care and in various other areas assisting staff, residents and patients.
Another significant volunteer group has been developed following the introduction of the CancerCare transport program, with volunteer drivers assisting people with cancer to travel to the larger town centres of Ballarat, Bendigo and Melbourne to receive treatment. Without this level of commitment it would be very difficult for many people to receive treatment for life threatening illnesses.
