About WSLHD Quality Awards
The annual Western Sydney Local Health District Quality Awards recognise the work of our nurses, doctors, allied health professionals, support staff and researchers. The awards showcase the hard work and delivery of innovative health programs and services that positively touched the lives of our patients, carers, and the wider community. Some of the annual award winners and their projects will be submitted for further recognition at a state and national level as part of the NSW Health Innovation Awards, the NSW Premier's Awards and the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards Quality Awards.
