During National Volunteer week, we held a luncheon in recognition and gratitude of our selfless volunteers.
Our Executive Director of Nursing and Midwifery, Fiona Reed, said this year’s National Volunteer Week theme of ‘better together’ aptly described the collaborative efforts of the more than 700 volunteers who supported our health service.
“The support from our volunteers and consumer representatives is invaluable,” she said.
“The contribution of our volunteers makes an incredible difference to the quality of care we provide and the effectiveness of our health service.”
Our volunteers received a gift voucher for an indigenous plant from The Mornington Peninsula Shire as a gesture of thanks for their contribution.
Mornington Peninsula Shire Mayor Anthony Marsh thanked the volunteers for their efforts.
“On behalf of the Mornington Peninsula Shire, I would like to thank all Peninsula Health volunteers for assisting those in our community, especially during the last couple of years where our health system was facing unprecedented challenges because of the pandemic,” he said.
“Volunteering is a core part of the community and plays a critical role in our society.”
We would like to thank our volunteers who dedicate their own time to make our health service a better place.
