Shuttle Buggy Driver
We need drivers for our Shuttle Buggy at Nelson Hospital. If you are fit and healthy and enjoy assisting people, become part of the buggy team.
Combine your love of books and visiting people as part of our library team. We are looking for friendly faces to help take a trolley of books and magazines to various wards for patients to borrow.
A friendly face, a welcoming smile and a desire to help people are essential qualities for this role. Information desk volunteers assist our patients and visitors to find their way around Wairau Hospital.
Meals on Wheels
More than just a carrier of hot meals, Meals on Wheels drivers deliver independence to many elderly and disabled people and those recovering from illness or hospital treatment. But most importantly, the service provides much-needed regular social contact for the Meals on Wheels recipients.
St John Friends of the Emergency Department
Our Friends of the Emergency Department (FED) volunteers and Hospital Friends provide comfort and support to patients and their families in hospital emergency departments, as well as other wards and units. This volunteer service is co-ordinated by St John, you can contact them toll-free on 0800 780 780.
Providing support and comfort to our patients and visitors is at the heart of this role. You need to be a real people person and enjoy spending time talking to people. This can be done in a variety of ways from reading newspapers to sharing information about what is happening in their local community to promoting what services are out there that patients can get involved in after leaving hospital care e.g. lunch clubs or exercise and fitness groups. It may be the local 'knit and natter' group or 'Menz Shed', even a Wellby Cafe.
