Deb Willcox named the first inductee to NSLHD Honour Roll

Former Northern Sydney Local Health District Chief Executive Deb Willcox has recently been inducted to the NSLHD Honour Roll as its first inductee. 

The NSLHD Board established the honour roll in 2022 to recognise outstanding contributions or distinguished and eminent service by an individual to NLSHD and its community.

Deb, who was the NSLHD CE from 2017 to 2022, has been recognised for her transformative leadership in key areas of culture such as diversity, research,
partnerships, sustainability and planetary health. 

The Board also credited Deb for her outstanding leadership throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, which included regular video updates to staff, visits to the health facilities and acknowledging staff with commemorative pins to thank them for their efforts.

NSLHD Board Chair Trevor Danos AM said the induction of Deb to the honour roll is a testament to the positive impact she made to everyone across the district. 

“The Board is delighted to recognise and celebrate Deb’s service,” he said.

During her time at NSLHD Deb built strong, open, transparent and respectful relationships with staff at all levels and in all positions, the Board, university partners, the Ministry of Health and all other stakeholders.

“Deb was always a team player who set a high standard on culture, trust, respect, productivity and behaviours, who empowered colleagues and built
strong team loyalty.”

The NSLHD Honour Roll will be maintained on the NSLHD website and displayed in NSLHD facilities and will give details of those who have been appointed.
