Medals for Nurses is an organisation which provides WA Nurses the recognition for their commitment and service to their communities by the State and Federal Governments.
Other Public Officers like the Ambulance Officers and Volunteers, Fire Brigade Officers and Volunteers, Corrective Service Officers, SES Officers and Volunteers and Royal Life Saving receive a National Service Medal after 15 years. We believe that nurses are an essential emergency service and the back bone to any health systems. Along with these other agencies that receive medals for their service, nurses should be acknowledged.
On Saturday 16 November, not one, but TWO of our staff members were awarded medals for their contribution to nursing in Western Australia.
39 nurses were presented with medals with a combined total of 1070 years of service to the profession. The Hon Dr Steve Thomas MLC presented the Medals.
Denise Hine, co-manager of the Parent Support Program and Lynn Douglas from the Chronic Disease Team were both inducted at the event last weekend.
GP down south is an exemplary not-for-profit community organisation. We have been providing health and wellbeing services in the Peel regions and the South West of WA since 1994.
