Funds raised through the BBQ support patients throughout all areas of Canberra Health Services enabling initiatives in the following areas: 


State-of-the-art technology and equipment enables streamlined workflow for health professionals and helps to decrease the distress experienced by patients and their families and caregivers.


Research of high quality, including discovery research and research aimed at improving everyday patient care, patient wellbeing, and health outcomes.


Refurbishments of away-from-bed spaces transform the hospital experience. Bright artwork, cosy furniture, and inviting decor make spaces feel less clinical, offering respite and distraction for patients and their families.


Therapeutic programs ensure patients' healing is holistic - taking into consideration mental and emotional wellbeing as a crucial aspect of the journey. The range of different programs offer outlets for relaxation, stimulation, creativity and companionship.
