There has been a lot to celebrate across our district over the last few weeks. It was great to see recognition for our medical staff in full swing for Doctor’s Day. This important day gives us all a chance to stop and acknowledge the continued dedication our doctors make to patients and the wider community. I would like to thank this opportunity to thank all of doctors across the district. Harmony Week, an important reminder for us to celebrate our diverse and multicultural communities, our different cultures, backgrounds and life experiences. Our diverse workforce reflects the communities we care for and helps our patients and consumers to feel confident the care they receive is respectful and appropriate. Two years ago, we launched our Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CALD) Employee Network which comes together to ensure our current and future workforce feel valued and supported to contribute, develop, and progress at our district. To get involved in the network please email our Organisational Development and Capability team NSLHD-ODTeam@ health.nsw.gov.au. It is always a highlight visiting our staff across the district. This week I visited the Northern Sydney Home Nursing Service (NSHNS) which does a fantastic job providing a high level of care to patients in the comfort of their homes and in clinical settings. It was a pleasure to meet the NSHNS team and I look forward to following the great work being done by the service.
