Quarterly Staff Recognition Awards Open Now
The Northern Health Quarterly Staff Recognition Awards are open now with entries due by 31 January 2019, and the Awards being presented in February.
This quarter we introduce a new award of Clinical Excellence that is open to individual clinicians and clinical teams. The executive believe that, given clinical excellence is at the core of our commitment to outstanding care for our community, it justifies a separate award.
The Clinical Excellence Award will recognise a team or individual that is generous with knowledge, instills confidence in patients and colleagues, and achieves the best patient outcomes.
(There is a separate criteria sheet for this award that nominators should read before submitting a nomination).
In October, we were delighted to launch the first of these new Awards, where six wonderful staff were recognised for their achievements. They are currently being profiled in iNews stories.
The Awards have been designed to formally recognise outstanding contributions by our employees and celebrate staff excellence. We have over 5,000 staff in a wide range of areas dedicated to providing trusted care for our patients and we would like to reward their hard work and commitment to patients.
We encourage staff to nominate their colleagues for their achievements at Northern Health, whose actions align with our values across the six categories:
Clinical Excellence, Patient Experience, Excellence in Safety, Innovation, Above and Beyond and the Rising Star Award.
Six Award Certificates and prizes of $250 each will be awarded each quarter courtesy of Maxxia and BankVic.
The Awards will culminate in Annual Awards to be held in the second half of 2019.
