The Alfred continues to be overwhelmed by the generous community support the hospital received during Dry July. The support has helped to improve a number of well-used areas for patients and their loved ones across the hospital.
Recently, the reception and waiting areas in the Alfred Health Radiation Oncology building were given a new lease of life thanks to the generosity of people going ‘Dry in July’. The upgrade includes: a lower desk, so patients in wheelchairs can interact with reception staff easily; new comfortable furnishings; and a mobile phone bar, so patients, their families and carers can always be contactable (allowing for at least one less worry for patients and loved ones). We hope the new and improved changes will make the space a little more welcoming, functional and, most importantly, comfortable for all who use it.
Thank you again to the Dry July Foundation for their partnership with The Alfred and to all of the remarkable people across the state who raised funds by abstaining from drinking alcohol throughout July. Your generosity and dedication has helped make life a little better and a littler nicer for people living with cancer.
