Kindness in Action at NHW

Kindness in Action at NHW for World Kindness Day  – 13 November 2019

Kindness Tree

To coincide with World Kindness Day on Wednesday 13th November, Northeast Health Wangaratta (NHW) is holding a week of activities to reinforce every staff member’s commitment to our Care & Kindness Charter.

The Kindness Tree will once again be a feature in the main foyer giving staff, visitors and patients an opportunity to record on a ‘leaf’, how they have experienced kindness at NHW.

On Friday 8th November, a special forum will be conducted featuring guest speakers including Professor Cath Crock, founder of the Hush Foundation, who will be discussing the Gathering of Kindness movement she is leading.

A Kindness in Cancer Care video will be released, featuring patients and staff from NHW.

Various teams throughout NHW will be undertaking activities to reinforce and celebrate how they are keeping kindness at the core of every interaction and supporting a culture of compassion where staff and patients feel supported and nurtured.
