Outstanding staff recognised in 2020 SESLHD Healthcare Awards
For the first time, winners of the SESLHD Healthcare Awards were announced live online during a recent live stream hosted by Tobi Wilson, Chief Executive, SESLHD.
The awards, which recognise innovation and excellence in the delivery of health programs and services, were simplified this year to recognise the need for a COVID-safe approach. However, they continued to focus on meeting the objectives of the NSW State Health Plan 2021 and ensuring the long-term sustainability of our healthcare system.
“It was great that we were able to recognise the wonderful achievements of our staff through the SESLHD Healthcare Awards, even if it had to be achieved differently to past years,” Mr Wilson said.
“I want to thank all the staff for submitting nominations during these unpredictable and busy times and I congratulate all the winners.
"There was an outstanding range of submissions and the judges reported it was particularly difficult to determine the winners.”
There are 10 winners and three special mentions across 10 award categories. Each of the submissions showcase SESLHD’s innovation in delivering an integrated health system, creativity in partnerships and improved efficiencies to support better health for the people of SESLHD.
You can read the full list of winners and their projects at the SESLHD Healthcare Awards website.
Winners from the SESLHD Healthcare Awards will now be submitted as nominations for the NSW Health Awards, which will be announced virtually on 29 October, 2020.
