If you have been cared for by an outstanding nurse or midwife in Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD), now is your chance to honour them.
Members of the public can now nominate nurses and midwives who have demonstrated outstanding care or contributed to improved health outcomes, for the Healing Heart 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 services across NNSWLHD.
"These awards are an opportunity to thank our nurses and midwives for their significant contribution to patients and to the broader community," Katharine Duffy, NNSWLHD 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.
"It's been a particularly challenging few years in health, and our nurses and midwives have done an incredible job in caring for our community right throughout the pandemic."
Nominations are now open, and close at 5pm on May 11.
