For years as part of our Alfred Appeal on Fathers’ Day, The Alfred has hosted a breakfast for hospital staff to say thanks for all they do. This year we wanted to extend the invitation out to everyone in the community to hold their own Virtual Breakfast Party in support of all those who provide critical care at The Alfred, including our dedicated nurses, doctors and other staff!
