Feelin’ the love on social media

Following what was a truly unforgettable year, our efforts didn’t go unnoticed in the community.

We have received hundreds of messages and comments of support and appreciation for Northern Health across our social media channels, especially over the festive season.

Recognising staff across the entire health service for their incredible efforts in 2020, here is what some community members had to say about you:

“I got tested on a 35+ degree day and the staff were wearing full PPE, despite this, they were incredibly kind and patient. Keep up the great work ๐Ÿ‘”ย 

“Thanks to your amazing team, the care and attention I was given made me feel special and safe.”

“This afternoon, I started getting a sore throat so I raced up to Epping at 6 pm for a COVID-19 test. I had my negative result back in four hours. Incredible! Thanks @northernhealth_ team. You are still working so hard and Iโ€™m so grateful.”

“I appreciate YOU and am thankful to the work you’ve done to keep us safe this (crazy!) year.”

“Thank you so much for your hard work and dedication during one of the most challenging years.”

After Victoria recorded a period of no new COVID-19 cases:

“Congratulations on an extraordinary effort! At one point the masses may have thought zero cases was impossible BUT with all your super careful methods, you’ve achieved this wonderful outcome! We love you and appreciate each and everyone of you! Thanking you really is just a small word but it comes with heartfelt gratitude!”

“Your team are amazing with all that you do. The care that you provide under some very extreme circumstances shows your dedication to your job and the community. Keep up the good work, but above all, stay safe!”

“Well done to Northern Health staff on your ongoing dedication and commitment on keeping COVID-19 at bay. Your hard work has paid off. I, as a northern suburbs member of our community, cannot THANK YOU ALL ENOUGH. You should be so proud of your dedication and support during those tough times. Give yourselves a pat on the back!”

“A great big thanks to all the laboratory staff for processing all those swabs! Massive effort, endless hours at work getting those results out to the community. Well done โœ…๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ”ฌ๐Ÿ˜ท
