Hey there mate. Sorry to hear of your situation. Good on you for pursuing even this unlikely avenue for work. I have been in your situation before... in Melbourne as it turns out. If you are up for anything, give cleaning a go. It was the path out of my dilemma at the time and was a far more rewarding job than I had expected.
I would suggest this: ring the Alfred Hospital main desk ( 03 9076 2000) and ask to get put through to cleaning services. You can call anytime, even at 2:00am where you are. Ask to speak to the shift supervisor, (the Cleaning Services Manager is available during daylight hours if you happen to call then). If the Shift Supervisor is not nearby, ask to have him/her paged and to return your call. (Don't bother to ask anyone, including whoever answers the phone, if their is work available. There is almost ALWAYS work available). When you get through to the Supervisor/Manager, explain your predicament and volunteer to work a shift for free so they can check you out. Next shift starts at 6:00am...
PS. If you happen to ring during the day time, ask if Craig is still Managing there. If he is, tell him Darren with the blonde hair who worked there doing isolation cleaning (mostly) a couple of years ago suggested you call.
