The 146th Annual General Meeting was a tremendous success with many staff, volunteers & community members in attendance to celebrate our achievements of the last 12 months and to hear about the current and future plans for Northeast Health.
Congratulations to the staff who were recognised for achievements in the Quality Awards, and Travelling Scholarships, and also to staff celebrating milestone years of service in particular Furruccio Tonini (Deputy Director of Nursing) for 45 years and Cathy Larkins (Manager of Admissions & Day Stay Unit) for 40 years of outstanding commitment to patient care at NHW.
Our thanks to guest speaker, Tony Mowbray – Solo World Sailor & Adventurer, who gave an inspiring and humourous presentation about the power of commitment, teamwork, total focus and unswerving self-belief after surviving the disaster of the 1998 Sydney to Hobart yacht race and then sailing solo, non-stop and unassisted around the world in 2000/01, spending 181 days alone at sea. Tony inspired all with his message to Dream, Think, Talk, Commit & Act.
You are invited to read the Quality Account 2017-2018 report.
