The District is inviting members of the public to nominate nurses or midwives who have demonstrated outstanding patient care or contributed to improved health outcomes for a Consumer Appreciation Award.
The annual NNSWLHD Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards acknowledge the contribution and dedication of nurses and midwives working in hospitals and health facilities across the District.
“These awards are an opportunity to thank our nurses and midwives for their significant contributions to their patients and their profession,” Katharine Duffy, NNSWLHD’s Director of Nursing, Midwifery and Aboriginal Health, said.
“I encourage anyone who has had a great experience with a nurse or midwife anywhere across our region to help us celebrate the great work they do by nominating them for the Consumer Appreciation Award.
“With the particularly challenging year we have had, our nurses and midwives have done an incredible job in caring for our community and their patients throughout the pandemic.”
The awards feature seven categories in total, providing an opportunity to celebrate staff in a wide range of roles including assistants in nursing, new graduate nurses and midwives, right up to educators and managers.
Nominations are now open, and close at 5pm on 26 May 2021. To submit a Consumer Appreciation nomination, click here.
