Our Hospital staff and volunteers
Our nursing staff are part of our clinical care team and will continually assess and monitor your health and wellbeing. They look after your physical, emotional, cognitive, social, and spiritual needs.
Allied health professionals are part of our multidisciplinary health and aim to prevent, diagnose and treat a range of conditions and illnesses. Allied health is made up of several clinical groups including:
- Hand therapy
- Social work
- Dietetics & nutrition
Our doctors examine, diagnose and treat patients who have been admitted via the emergency department or referred to the hospital by general practitioners and other health professionals. They apply their medical knowledge and skills to diagnosis, educate and to develop medical care plans. Our doctors may also refer you on to other healthcare professionals.
Senior doctors may undertake management responsibilities such as planning the workload and staffing of departments, supervising junior doctors and medical students, and carrying out auditing and research.
Volunteers are a valued part of our health service team. You will see many volunteers supporting staff, patients and family members across the organisation. They donate their time and energy to improving the life of patients, their families and visitors.
