Hail our health he­roes

Mt Druitt - St Mary's Standard (East) - - NEWS -

THE great work our me­dial pro­fes­sion­als do of­ten goes un­recog­nised un­til an ill­ness or ac­ci­dent strikes.

To recog­nise a range of in­spi­ra­tional peo­ple and pro­grams, NewsLo­cal has again joined forces with Western Syd­ney Lo­cal Health Dis­trict (WSLHD) to pro­mote the Qual­ity Awards in healthcare.

These awards en­cour­age staff to strive for ex­cel­lence in pa­tient care, re­search, and dis­ease preven­tion.

They also recog­nise in­no­va­tion that ben­e­fits pa­tients, car­ers, fam­i­lies, staff and the com­mu­nity.

As part of our part­ner­ship we will be invit­ing you, our read­ers, to vote for the Com­mu­nity Choice Award, one of 11 cat­e­gories in the pres­ti­gious pro­gram.

Over the next two weeks we will be show­cas­ing the 16 fi­nal­ists, start­ing with two to­day, from 56 out­stand­ing en­tries.

WSLHD em­ploys more than 9500 peo­ple and pro­vides public healthcare to more than 900,000 res­i­dents of Western Syd­ney.

It en­com­passes all public healthcare fa­cil­i­ties across 100 sites in­clud­ing West­mead, Auburn, Black­town and Mt Druitt hos­pi­tals.

De­tails on how to vote for the Com­mu­nity Choice Win­ner will be in next week’s news­pa­per.
