Patient & Family Support

Burn injury is devastating and the effects can last a lifetime for the burn survivor and their family. Our patient and family support programs help to alleviate some of the challenges burn survivors face both in the short and longer term.

Patient Vehicle Service: Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH), South Australia
The Patient Vehicle Service is made possible by the generous support of Holden Ltd by providing a fully maintained vehicle at the Royal Adelaide Hospital (South Australia) for the transportation of burn patients to vital out-patient visits.

Driven by the dedicated Lavender Lads and Ladies Volunteer Service based at the RAH, the car has:

  • assisted 94 patients on
  • 266 occasions of service and
  • travelled over 10,400kms.
