Veterans’ Liaison Unit

The Veterans’ Liaison Unit provides support for Veterans’ and War Widows (who are inpatients of Canberra Hospital) and their families.

Our services

The Veterans’ Liaison Nurses work with a multidisciplinary team (doctors, nurses, and allied health professionals), and are involved with discharge planning for inpatients and also provide follow-up post discharge.

A Veterans’ Lounge is available on the Canberra Hospital campus and is also used by our Volunteers from the RSL and Vietnam Veterans Federation who provide hospital visitation. The Lounge is also a meeting place for the Dark and Stormies Group.
