The Gippsland Primary Health Awards recognise local primary healthcare organisations, teams or individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to improved health outcomes for people in Gippsland.
This year’s awards will be a hybrid event – in person at The Criterion, 90 MacAlister Street in Sale and online via Zoom.
The awards will be presented by Gippsland PHN Chair, Therese Tierney and keynote speaker, Kutcha Edwards, one of Australia’s finest contemporary singers of his generation and iconic storyteller.
There are four categories for excellence in delivering quality primary care in Gippsland; all are aligned with Gippsland Primary Health Network’s priority areas.
Gippsland PHN is committed to providing inclusive services and work environments where people of all backgrounds, sexualities, genders, cultures, spiritual beliefs, age, bodies and abilities are valued, supported and celebrated.
Gippsland PHN acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional owners of country throughout Gippsland, and their continuing connection to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to them and their cultures, and to elders both past and present.
We also recognise, respect and affirm the central role played in our work by people with lived experience, their families and/or carers.
Gippsland PHN acknowledges Alfie Hudson for the healing circles artwork. Alfie is a Gunai Kurnai man and created this artwork which represents health professionals being committed to work in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community members for the best health outcomes.
