Logo for Country Health Connect - Limestone Coast Local Health Network Inc.

The Limestone Coast Local Health Network are looking for Friends of the Emergency Department (FEDs) volunteers for permanent shifts within the Emergency Department.

Volunteers are required to meet COVID19 vaccinations requirements, as per the governments mandate and provide evidence of their COVID vaccinations to the Volunteer Coordinator before commencements.

Our FEDs volunteers provide the patients, family/friends and nursing staff within the Emergency Department with support during the patient’s treatment. These volunteers are the friendly face and ears for those coming into the department by providing empathy, comfort and reassurance. FEDs volunteers perform many duties during their shifts but some of the most valued duties are - assist by chatting with inpatients/families/carers, providing puzzle packs, warm blankets, reassurance to those waiting in the waiting areas and lots more especially when the Emergency Department is busy. This can be a very rewarding role and the volunteers already within the role love being able to assist the nursing staff and patients/families/carers when they are most in need.

Country Health Connect will ensure you have ongoing support and training.

  • We require all volunteers to have their DHS Aged Care and Working with Children Clearances prior to commencement.
  • We also require all volunteers to provide the Volunteer Coordinator with evidence of their COVID-19 vaccinations.
