Life changing grant

2017 Board Bursary recipient WSLHD clinical governance project officer Sally Henderson.

A recipient of a grant under the 2017 Board Bursary program grant WSLHD clinical governance project officer Sally Henderson has said the funding helped her continue her studies to become a health quality manager.

“I am working through a Masters of quality service in health and safety through the University of Tasmania via correspondence,” Ms Henderson said.

“Before I received the bursary payment of $5,000 I was only able to do one subject per semester.

“The grant has enabled me to fast track my degree and do two subjects per semester which means it will cut a year or two off the length of the course.

“My circumstances changed since starting the course and without this financial assistance I may have dropped out of the course altogether.

“I’m on a single income now and living as a single mother and without this assistance I would have had to drop out of the program altogether – it has really helped me continue with my studies.

“This $12,000 degree supports my current role working in clinical governance and I aspire to remain working in quality and safety with the motivation to become a quality manager for WSLHD in the future.

“I encourage any WSLHD staff who are studying to apply for this potentially life changing grant.”
