Eleven outstanding NSW Health staff from across the state have been recognised for their dedication and excellent care of patients at today’s 2021 NSW Health Awards.

Minister for Health Brad Hazzard and Minister for Regional Health and Mental Health Bronnie Taylor presented the winners from 192 nominations with awards.

“These awards acknowledge the truly amazing dedication and incredible skill of our healthcare providers across the health system,” Mr Hazzard said.

“Last year was extraordinary and everyone working in the health system, particularly today’s winners, deserve to honoured for going above and beyond to support our patients.”

NSW Health received 192 nominations, highlighting the variety of innovative and sustainable health programs delivering significant outcomes to patients around the state.

The 23rd Annual NSW Health Awards were streamed on the NSW Health website at 12.30pm today, with live sites at every Local Health District, Network and Pillar statewide and live crosses to celebrate with all of the winners.

Mrs Taylor said the NSW Health system has been a shining light worldwide throughout this pandemic thanks to our dedicated workforce.

“Our health workers do incredible things each and every day, often without thanks and acknowledgement,” Mrs Taylor said.

“Today we celebrate each and every one of you for your dedication, commitment and for helping our state through the challenges of the past few years.

“Eleven of the 33 finalists at today’s 2021 NSW Health Awards are from regional NSW, showcasing the importance of innovation and collaboration throughout our entire system. I look forward to celebrating with all of our outstanding winners.”
