  • Excellence in the Provision of Mental Health Services Award

Responsive User Services in Health (RUSH) manager Peter Ellis-Jones worked on the ‘Needle and Syringe Program (NSP) reducing plastic waste’ with Royal North Shore and Brookvale Community Health centre’s, which won the 2023 Planetary Health Award.

Peter said the awards are a fantastic opportunity for staff to be recognised for their hard work.

“Being recognised for our dedication and hard work infused the entire team with a renewed sense of morale. This acknowledgment not only brought us together but also sparked a surge of creativity, leading to the initiation of innovative ideas,” he said.

Staff wanting to enter the awards can visit or email for any guidance with submissions. Entries need to be submitted by Wednesday 3 April.
