Peter’s nomination for NSW Health Collaborative Leader of the Year recognises his exceptional contribution to health services as Transition Manager for Stage 1 of the Blacktown and Mount Druitt Hospitals Expansion Project.
Peter oversaw an extensive engagement program with more than 10,000 interactions with staff and community members to ensure the new facilities truly reflected their needs, and the cultural diversity of the local area.
Peter championed a collaborative and consultative approach by working extensively with clinicians, consumers, carers, patients and community to implement a range of cultural and operational changes in readiness for the opening of state-of-the-art new hospital buildings.
The project is now recognised locally and internationally for its successful consumer and clinician engagement, carer zones, arts program, Paper-Lite initiative and digital innovation, as well as the design itself.
