Bendigo Health

Bendigo Health is a public health service which cares for community members within the Loddon Mallee region, consisting of 56,965 square kilometres or 26% of Victoria, with a population currently reported as 307,405. From Gisborne in the South, Echuca in the North, Kyabram in the North East and Mildura in the far North West, the region nestles amongst the State borders of Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales.

"Over the last two weeks we've had around 10 trips in the Volunteer Express and we can't thank the volunteers and staff at Bendigo Health enough for their wonderful, friendly service.

We've been staying at Bendigo Health's Lucan Street Patient Accommodation while receiving daily cancer treatment and being country people this transport service has taken the worry away from driving and finding our way around at this difficult time.  The Volunteer Express is truly a top of the range service.  We've got to know the volunteers and they have been so friendly and importantly ensure you get to your appointments on time!  Despite the challenges the volunteers made us feel comfortable and we even shared a few jokes."
