We believe it’s our corporate social responsibility to look beyond our organisation and help those in the wider medical community.

We recently made a major commitment to sponsor rooms at Ronald McDonald House at Perth Children’s Hospital and Westmead House, Sydney, and are also happy to consider smaller projects. Many of our staff members enjoyed using their volunteering time for the Home for Dinner program and helped to cook a meal for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House.

Royal Perth Hospital recently benefited from our donation to their Music on the Bridge program where a passionate group of doctors and volunteers bring local musicians to play at the hospital once a week at lunchtime. It was music to our ears! Throughout the year we also supported various other charities including Youth Focus, Gidget Foundation, The Smith Family, Tour de Cure and of course our Charity of Choice, beyondblue.
