Celebrating NSLHD’s allied health professionals

More than 1660 allied health professionals working across 22 disciplines in northern Sydney were celebrated earlier this month on Allied Health Professions Day (14 October). 

Allied Health Professions Day started back in 2018 by two clinicians in the United Kingdom. The clinicians wanted to recognise allied health professionals and their contribution to patient care and population health.

This year’s theme was Stronger Together, and NSLHD Interim Chief Executive Lee Gregory said this highlights the essential collaborative care allied health clinicians provide. 

“I would like to say a huge thank you to our allied health professionals – you are an incredible group of people and we truly appreciate your commitment and dedication," he said.

This is reflective of the remarkable care our allied health staff provide to patients and consumers in acute, rehabilitation and community setting,” he said.

On the day, NSLHD Director of Allied Health Julia Capper announced the winners of the annual Allied Health Professionals Awards, and staff were treated to gelato. 

“Our allied health clinicians work hard every day to make a difference in people’s lives and this is recognised by our patients and consumers, their families, and the multi-disciplinary teams they contribute to,” Julia said. 

“Thank you for the remarkable contribution that you make every day – your dedication, energy, flexibility and compassion.”
