Volunteer Network

The hospital has approximately 120 volunteers, who vary from 18 to 86 years of age. They all bring a wonderful, diverse range of skills and personalities to enhance the consumer experience at the hospital. For example, volunteer duties include staffing information/welcome desks, guiding consumers throughout the hospital, assisting with patient activities on various wards, undertaking the refreshment service in outpatient clinic areas and the pharmaceutical courier service. However, and most importantly, the volunteers are here to provide conversation, company and general support to patients and staff each day.

If you are interested in becoming an RHH volunteer, please contact our Volunteer Service on telephone (03) 6166 7087 for an application package, or to seek answers to any queries you have in regard to the RHH Volunteer Service Program.


Patients who first arrive at the hospital and require wheelchair  assistance to transfer to appointments or locations within the hospital are encouraged to arrange their own wheelchairs. The medical orderly team provides wheelchair transfers for inpatients and those being discharged.


Should you wish to make a Will while you are in the RHH you are advised to contact a solicitor or trustee company.
