The Metro South Health COVID-19 Staff Recognition Awards recognise staff who have gone above and beyond during the planning, preparation and response to COVID-19.
Six separate award categories will recognise individuals and teams who have demonstrated performance excellence while making a significant contribution and embodying the Metro South Health values.
The award categories will be attributed to both an individual and team winner, and special mentions where appropriate:
In addition to the above categories, an overall Board Chair and Chief Executive’s joint Award for Excellence will be presented to an outstanding individual and/or team.
Nominations are to be submitted via the online nomination form and must include:
Nominations will be reviewed by a panel of judges including the COVID-19 Incident Controller, Metro South Executive members and a Board representative.
The panel will consider each nomination against the criteria and provide a recommendation for an individual winner, team winner and special mention (if applicable) for each award category.
The Health Service Chief Executive and Board Chair will review the panel’s recommendations and confirm the award recipients.
All winners and special mentions are subject to integrity checks prior to final confirmation. Integrity checks will be conducted by Metro South HR.
Winners and special mentions will be announced via roadshow events to be held at facilities—a small event with winners, special mentions and executive invited to attend. Social distancing guidelines will be followed with minimum numbers in attendance.
