Are you our next Charlie’s Angel?

Our amazing volunteers here at The Prince Charles Hospital are affectionately known as Charlie’s Angels! You can’t miss them in their brilliant yellow shirts!

From meeting and greeting at the main entrance to visiting patients in specialist wards, our Charlie’s Angels are always willing to provide assistance to not only the visitors and patients of the hospital, but to the staff too.

We are on the hunt to grow our team of passionate and dedicated volunteers. Do you have what it takes to volunteer and become a Charlie’s Angel?

Meet & Greeters: Some of the first people patients and visitors to the hospital see are the meet & greeters. They have the very important job of helping the public navigate their way through the hospital.

Ward Visitors: Ward visitors assist both patients and staff. Many patients to The Prince Charles Hospital are from rural and remote areas and have few friends or family in Brisbane. Our ward visitors provide company to those who need it and practical assistance to hospital staff with simple administration tasks, such as photocopying and refilling flower water.

Specialist Ward Visitors: Our Geriatric Evaluation and Management unit requires ward visitors who are comfortable dealing with patients who may be suffering dementia. These volunteers may assist with opening containers for patients during meal times, provide company through conversation, and help facilitate activities and games for small groups.

Administration Assistants: Many areas within the hospital rely heavily on volunteer support with simple administrative tasks such as photocopying, collating and labeling. Our administration assistants play a very important role in helping to keep things running smoothly at The Prince Charles Hospital!

Charlie’s Angels are expected to volunteer a minimum of four hours per week for a minimum of six months. As a part of the Metro North Hospital & Health Service, our volunteers exemplify respect, integrity, compassion, high performance and teamwork throughout all of their work with patients, visitors and staff.
