Thank You Week at Northern Health

As the end of the year is approaching, I would like to thank you, for everything you have done for our patients, our community, and for supporting each other during the year.

This year, more than ever, our values of safe, kind and together have been fundamental to our daily work.

This year has brought numerous challenges and changes in the organisation, and I am proud of the adaptability and strength our staff have shown. While we all had difficult days, we have showed that by working together, with kindness and safety at the forefront of everything we do, we can come to the end of this year feeling proud.

To celebrate you, and your work, we have decided to dedicate this week to acknowledging your work and thanking you.

During Northern Health’s Thank You Week, you will be able to view messages here from our patients, volunteers and donors, as well as other prominent personalities from the Victorian community, thanking you for your hard work during the pandemic. Please keep an eye on the Intranet, as well as Northern Health’s social media accounts, as we share their messages.

We are very pleased The Honourable Linda Dessau AC, Governor of Victoria, personally thanked Northern Health staff. See message below.


This week, we will be announcing the winners of the Quarterly Staff Recognition Awards and, next week, the Length of Service Awards. Staff acknowledged during these awards symbolise the care, professionalism and achievements of all of our 5,700 staff.

From me personally, and from our Board Chair, Jennifer Williams AM, the Board and the Executive, I congratulate you on another year of dedication to your work and our patients.

Kind regards

Siva Sivarajah

Chief Executive
