Volunteers needed for palliative care

NSW Health Minister Jillian Skinner was at Liverpool Hospital last week to welcome more than 1,800 graduate nurses and midwives who are launching their careers at 139 hospital and health services across the state. Mrs Skinner, who met some of the 41 nurses and midwives who will start their careers at Liverpool Hospital, said: “I congratulate our nursing and midwifery graduates as they embark on this wonderfully rewarding career – about one third of them in rural and regional hospitals.” Pictured with Mrs Skinner is the State Member for Menai, Melanie Gibbons.

Have you cared for a loved one at the end of life or would like to support someone at the end of their life?

The South West Sydney LHD Palliative Care Volunteer Service is looking for people interested in being palliative care volunteers to support patients in hospital and the community.

Palliative care volunteers receive training to help them provide practical and emotional support to patients, carers and families through end of life care.

People who speak a language other than English – in particular Vietnamese, Arabic and Spanish – are encouraged to volunteer.

A free information session will be held on Monday, March 13, with training to commence on Tuesday, March 24 in Liverpool Hospital.
