Organisation information

The Milton Ulladulla Hospital Auxiliary Branch of NSW was formed in 1933 and is run by a group of dedicated local volunteers.

There are three arms providing services:-

  • FundRaising to purchase vital medical equipment for patient treatment, care and comfort.
  • Hospital Visitation team; our members visit patients in hospital providing an opportunity to provide company and support. We often might drop in for a chat or read the newspaper or books for patients.
  • Milton Ulladulla Hospital Patient Library.  The library provides the hospital patients with the opportunity to relax and read in the library room or take a book back to their bed. If they have not finished the book, they can take the book home.

The Auxiliary also supports the Hospital’s Staff Wellbeing SEED Program. The program is aimed at providing wellbeing for all staff and is underpinned by the themes of Stability, Encompass, Endurance and Direction (SEED). It includes a quiet room, aromatherapy and a coffee buddy system, which allows the “coffee chat” to take place off site.
The “Fit for Frailty” program encourages patients to change into day wear and spend time in the lounge or dining room or the patient library.  The Auxiliary supports the program by supplying patients with underwear and day clothes.
The Auxiliary Executive meets regularly with the Director of Nursing and Midwifery services to discuss hospital needs, progress on activities and purchases and develop a ‘wish list’ of items for future consideration. This ensures the Auxiliary members are fully informed about how any request for funding will benefit our local community before the request is approved for fundraising.
