RSL NSW Liaison Officer to join the National Centre for Veterans’ Healthcare

A former member of the Royal Australian Navy, Bronte Pollard is an independent member of the RSL NSW Veterans Services and Policy Committee and has now taken on a role to support the National Centre for Veterans’ Healthcare (NCVH) at Concord Hospital.

The NCVH provides planned and scheduled care across a range of specialist services for veterans including psychology, drug and alcohol problems, pain management and control, and generalised lifestyle, fitness, and nutritional programs.

As the RSL NSW Liaison Officer, Bronte will work with the RSL NSW sub-Branch network and Veteran Services Division of RSL LifeCare to connect veterans to the services available at NCVH.

“The NCVH is an amazing Australia-first treatment program specifically for veterans with complex medical needs and I look forward to RSL NSW, RSL LifeCare and Concord Hospital working collaboratively to connect veterans to the support services that they need,” Bronte said.

“I am passionate about the holistic concept of the case management of treatment and discharge planning for veterans with complex medical needs.”

RSL NSW is Australia’s largest member-based veterans’ charity that supports veterans and their families by connecting them to services to improve their wellbeing. RSL LifeCare and RSL DefenceCare are the partner charities of RSL NSW.
