Hed­land ther­apy ser­vice in awards mix

North West Telegraph - - News - Robert Dougherty

A ther­apy ser­vice in Hed­land has been nom­i­nated for the an­nual WA Re­gional Achieve­ment and Com­mu­nity Awards.

Re­gional De­vel­op­ment Min­is­ter Alan­nah MacTier­nan pre­sented the award nom­i­na­tion to South Hed­land’s PATCHES Pae­di­atrics at a func­tion in Perth on Oc­to­ber 19.

Na­tional man­ager Chris Bri­ody said to re­ceive recog­ni­tion for more than 40 di­ag­nos­tic as­sess­ments and more than 800 hours of ther­apy ev­ery month was a great ex­pe­ri­ence.

“It was a great cel­e­bra­tion for not only our team who strive hard to de­liver high-qual­ity di­ag­nos­tics and ther­apy ser­vices in the hard to reach places, but also the other or­gan­i­sa­tions across re­gional WA,” he said.

Mr Brody said Hed­land was a land of op­por­tu­nity for busi­nesses and groups, to fol­low PATCHES fo­cus on train­ing par­ents, car­ers and ed­u­ca­tors.

“Hed­land has op­por­tu­nity, there is so much that hap­pens in this small town more than just min­ing,’ he said.

“I see first­hand on a daily ba­sis the im­pact al­lied health clin­i­cians can have on in­di­vid­u­als and their fam­i­lies with dis­abil­i­ties in im­prov­ing out­come mea­sures to re­duce func­tional im­pair­ment, in­crease func­tional in­de­pen­dence and thus are life chang­ing.”
