Today is International Volunteers' Day and we are paying homage to our over 400 volunteers at PCH. They play an exceptionally important role - making sure that our patients, families and visitors have a positive experience when they come to stay or visit our hospital.

Instantly recognisable in their tangerine tops, PCH volunteers work across 14 areas in our hospital, including outpatients clinics, wards and waiting areas. They share a commitment to supporting the people who visit PCH - from helping new visitors find their destination, supporting a patient with their studies, providing a cup of coffee for an anxious parent through to playing endless games of Uno, our inspirational volunteers make a huge difference.

If you're interested in becoming a volunteer, you must be over 18, be able to commit to at least one four hour shift per week for at least 12 months, obtain a Working with Children and Police check and attending mandatory training sessions.
