Nurses and midwives recognised at annual awards
Nurses and midwives at the Women’s were celebrated at an annual awards ceremony yesterday.
The Women’s Nursing and Midwifery Awards acknowledge the hard work, dedication and compassion of our staff.
This year’s ceremony was held in person for the first time since 2019.
The Women’s Director of Maternity Services Jenny Ryan, who hosted the awards ceremony, acknowledged the buzz in the room that came from being together to celebrate.
She commended the courage and resilience of our nurses and midwives who provide exceptional care to our patients and their families every day.
“It is an honour to be able to recognise some of our outstanding staff for the contribution they make to women’s and newborn health,” she said.
“I have been fortunate enough to work with many inspirational nurses and midwives at the Women’s over the past 20 years. It never ceases to amaze me the empathy, kindness, commitment and dedication shown by my colleagues, even in the most trying of circumstances.”
