Meg scores nursing lifetime award
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.
