VIC­TO­RIA Park’s Megan Scully has taken home a Life­time Achieve­ment Award at the WA Nurs­ing and Mid­wifery Ex­cel­lence Awards for her ded­i­cated ser­vice in West­ern Australia’s public health sys­tem. Ms Scully en­tered the nurs­ing pro­fes­sion in the UK in 1968, with post-grad­u­ate train­ing in Com­mu­nity and Public Health. She is now the nurs­ing co-or­di­na­tor at WA Health’s Com­mu­ni­ca­ble Dis­ease Con­trol Di­rec­torate. WA Health’s chief health of­fi­cer Tarun Weera­man­thri said Ms Scully’s award was fan­tas­tic recog­ni­tion for an ex­em­plary ca­reer in public health. “Ms Scully has been work­ing for WA Health’s Com­mu­ni­ca­ble Dis­ease Con­trol Di­rec­torate since 1994, and has been in­stru­men­tal in im­prov­ing health out­comes of peo­ple across the State,” she said.
