Food and drinks will be taken care of at the Good Friday Appeal as the Rapid Relief Team (RRT) supports the Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne’s (RCHM) annual fundraising event.


Thirty volunteers are expected to serve up around 1,200 meals, including bacon and egg rolls, sausage sandwiches and Signature Burgers.


RRT Melbourne Local Team Leader Billy Salisbury said the team was proud to have supported the event for the past eight years.


“This is a special event that’s close to our hearts, and we’re glad we can be here again to provide some good food to all those who are part of the Royal Children's Hospital community,” Billy said.


“The Hospital has had such a significant impact on the lives of children in our community, we feel quite humbled to be here in support.

“It is a wonderful day, and if we can take care of the food and refreshments, then the Hospital can concentrate on raising as much as they can to provide state-of-the-art care for children in need.”


RRT will be serving hot food from 6am as the Appeal gets underway. Ice cream vans will also be onsite with Border Force Puppies making an appearance for the kids.

It’s the number one challenge of people with cancer in Australia[i], yet ‘cancer related fatigue’ is the often-unspoken side effect that drains and debilitates thousands of Australians every day. With approximately one in two cancer patients reportedly experiencing moderate to severe fatigue during treatment[ii], and for many in the years following, the Leukaemia Foundation believes the prevalence of cancer related fatigue could be much higher. According to CEO, Chris Tanti, with the incidence of blood cancer continuing to soar (by 47% in the last decade[iii]), this means at least 70,000 Australians living with the disease are facing a daily battle…

Everyone needs a GP and general practice must be supported to thrive: RACGP

The Royal Australia College of General Practitioners (RACGP) has again stressed the Government’s Scope of Practice review must focus on supporting the vital role of GPs at the heart of primary care teams rather than copying disastrous UK health system failures. In an initial response to Issues Paper 2, RACGP President Dr Nicole Higgins said: “Everyone needs a GP, and any reform must support the role of GPs at the heart of primary care – helping people live healthier and avoid hospital. “Patients get the best outcomes when GPs and other health professionals work together for our patients.
