Congratulations to Northern Sydney Local Health District Director of Campus Strategy Allana Thompson who has been awarded Willoughby Local Woman of the Year at the NSW Women of the Year Awards.
Allana was nominated for the award by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, Member for Willoughby.
Allana has held various positions during her career at NSW Health. She completed her nursing training at Hornsby Ku-ring-gai Hospital and worked in a number of nursing roles at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital before moving into capital works.
“Whilst I enjoyed the career change I continued to work as a bedside clinical nurse on the weekends to keep my skills current,” she said.
“I continued to work as a nurse in this capacity until 2020.”
Throughout 2020 Allana played a key role within the COVID-19 logistics team, where she was tasked with rapidly increasing bed capacity at Royal North Shore Hospital.
Allana said it was nice to be recognised for her work and accepted it on behalf of the team.
