People remain Lifeblood of our District

Westmead Hospital patient Ashleigh Powell returns to thank our staff after spending four months in hospital recovering from a motorbike crash.

Need a lift after an unforgettable 12 months? Simply flick through the stunning images of Lifeblood 2020.

This year’s edition proves one thing – inspiration comes from within.

Our care and resilience in the face of one hell of a year shine through as teams from across the Western Sydney Local Health District continue to inspire us with their determination and innovation.

From a patient’s deep embrace with her nurse after spending four months in hospital to the 24/7 unified stance against COVID, Lifeblood 2020 captures our District in its raw state.

You can’t tell the story of 2020 without COVID-19.

Moments in time where our doctors, nurses, allied health workers, researchers and staff made a difference.

We may look back on 2020 and shake our heads. It’s been a testing time.

The ebbs and flows of hospital life again kept everyone on their toes. Chuck in the savage summer bushfires and a pandemic that will change us forever, the past 12 months have provided perhaps our greatest challenge.

As we near the end of a memorable year, Lifeblood 2020 gives us time to reflect on what we achieved together and why we serve on health’s front line.
