Nominations sought for a special people’s choice award for nurses

Central Coast residents are being encouraged to nominate a local nurse or midwife who made a difference during their time in care, by nominating them for NSW Health Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards.

The annual awards recognise the significant skill, passion and valued contributions of nurses and midwives.

To ensure that the state’s most exceptional nurses and midwives can be celebrated in the safest possible way, this year’s awards will be held virtually, with an online ceremony slotted for November 26.

While most awards are nominated by local health districts and speciality networks, the Healing Heart Award is nominated by patients and Central Coast Local Health District encourages residents to consider nominating a local for the award.

“The Healing Heart Award is a special people’s choice award, with nominations open to patients, families and carers.

“It honours a nurse or midwife for providing exceptional care.

“Does this sound like someone you know?” a CCLHD spokesperson said.

Nominations can be made via NSW Health’s website until July 27.
