Our Community Champions do their best to support and brighten the day of our patients and visitors. We’re privileged to benefit from their years of knowledge, enthusiasm, empathy and generosity.
Our Champions may help visitors and patients find their way around our hospital, visit patients on wards and even drive eligible patients to appointments at the hospital.
Roles include concierge, patient transport, emergency department, chemotherapy, dialysis and allied heath and patient support across LRH including medical, surgical and children’s wards.
A typical Champion role involves at least one shift per week or fortnight of approximately four hours. From day one you will feel part of the LRH team as you are supported by our Engagement team, staff and your fellow Champions.
