2022 - Year in Review

2022 Quality and Improvement Awards

After being held remotely due to COVID-19 restrictions in 2021, the 2022 Quality and Improvement Awards were held at RNSH.

The awards are a special event to celebrate staff who make a real and positive difference to the lives of our patients, consumers, and their families and carers. The Planetary Health Award was a new category added this year. Former NSLHD chief executive Deb Willcox said it was great to be able to celebrate these awards in person again so the winners and finalists could receive their awards. “To the winners and finalists, this is a celebration of your hard work which enables our district to provide the best and highest quality care for our community. It is also an opportunity to inspire your colleagues,” she said.
