Last chance for 2020 Quality Awards submissions

Western Sydney Local Health District (WSLHD) staff are being encouraged to submit their 2020 Quality Awards projects before submissions close at the end of this month.

The Quality Awards, which is WSLHD’s event of the year, celebrates quality projects which have improved healthcare delivery and patient outcomes in western Sydney.

Staff have started planning a virtual and VIP experience in September which will make nominees feel extra special at the awards night in September.

WSLHD Clinical Governance director Heather Doolan said she was delighted that a number of entries have already been submitted.

“This year, the award ceremony is going to take on a completely different look and feel due to COVID-19, but a very special experience is guaranteed for staff who attend,” Heather said.

“Don’t let your team miss out on winning a 2020 Quality Award.”

There are eight categories and three peak awards including the Chief Executive, Board Chair and the People’s Choice Award.

The award categories are:

  • Transforming Patient Experience
  • Delivering Integrated Care
  • Patient Safety First
  • Keeping People Healthy
  • Supporting our Teams
  • A Safe and Healthy Workplace
  • Innovation and Research
  • Education and Training

Submissions are due by 30 June. Speak with your local Quality Manager to submit your entry or contact Natalie Fester-Lloyd on 0429 395 789.
