Nominate a nurse or midwife for the Healing Heart Award

Nurses and Midwives are often touted as the unsung heroes in our community, especially in the past four years with COVID and the 2022 big flood affecting their work leading to double shifts as nursing numbers decreased substantially.


This time of year is when you get to recognise an outstanding nurse or midwife in the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSWLHD), as part of the 2024 Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards. 

 


Members of the public are invited to nominate nurses and midwives who have demonstrated outstanding care or contributed to improved health outcomes, for the Healing Heart Consumer Appreciation Award. 

 

The annual awards acknowledge the contribution and dedication of nurses and midwives working in hospitals and health services across the District.  



“These awards are an opportunity to recognise and celebrate our nurses and midwives for their significant contribution to patients and the broader community,” Katharine Duffy, NNSWLHD Director of Nursing and Midwifery, said. 

 

“I encourage anyone who has had an outstanding experience with a nurse or midwife anywhere across our region to help us acknowledge the work they do by nominating them for the Healing Heart Consumer Appreciation Award. 


“Our nurses and midwives do an amazing job every day caring for our community, and it’s wonderful to be able to acknowledge the positive impact their care has had on patients and their families.”  



Nominations are now open, and close at 5pm on 14 May 2024. 


To nominate a nurse or midwife, visit the NNSWLHD website.
