NHH Auxiliary

Who We Are

The smile that greets you at the door; the wheelchair driver from the Day Surgery clinic to your car; the comforting voice in the Emergency Department; the cheerful presence as you wait for your MRI; the one who helps you decide from the bounty in the Little Treasure Shop; the ever helpful men and women at Petticoat Lane... all of these and more are the faces of NHH volunteers.

NHH is the proud home of one of the most active hospital auxiliaries in the province. The Auxiliary's mission is to provide effective and compassionate assistance to visitors, staff and patients, in an environment that promotes the dignity and wellbeing of all. For over 100 years we have been helping to deliver quality health care in west Northumberland.

With 250 active members of all ages, the NHH Auxiliary is growing, contributing thousands of hours of service to the hospital each year.
