Hail our health heroes
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.
