Redland's Best and Fairest

14 December 2018

Redland Hospital has unveiled its medical officer award winners for 2018 for Best and Fairest PHO/Registrar; Best and Fairest House Officer; and Rising Star for the Rural Generalist Intern whose record reflected ongoing and continuous growth within their first year.

Director of Medical Services, Dr Graham Steel said nominations are made with due focus on role modelling, leadership, professionalism, integrity, teamwork, a commitment to continuous learning, actively contributing to the wider Redland Hospital culture/community and of course, patient care.

“Importantly, our awards are based on ratings by our Unit Directors and Staff Specialists across the facility and nominations are reviewed by an independent panel so the winners truly represent everything that is great about our medical training program here at Redland,” he said.

The 2018 winners are Dr Mark Phillipps and Dr Justin Azzopardi as the PHO/Reg “Best and Fairest”, Dr Ryan Avery as the House officer “Best and Fairest” and Dr Bonny Jones as the “Rising Star”.

Dr Mark Phillipps offers remarkable support for junior staff and he has been commended by nursing, Emergency Department staff and other colleagues for his work ethic and how he absolutely contributes to positive culture at Redland.  Dr Justin Azzopardi is no stranger to this award program and continues to display an excellent work ethic by always going the extra mile. His leadership by example is the most notable feature in his nomination alongside an ongoing contribution to the department and hospital as the ‘roster master’.

“Dr Ryan Avery has been an excellent addition to the department and is very keen to learn and gain new skills.  His nomination displays a patient centred approach and that he is an excellent role model to the junior doctors,” Dr Steel said. 

This year’s winner of the Rising Star award, Dr Bonny Jones had the consultant group celebrating her excellent clinical skills, communication, teamwork and contribution to the culture of Redland Hospital by actively engaging in the RMO society, Redsoc.

“Bonny also represents Redland Hospital at the JMO Queensland forum and she is the member of the Redland General Clinical Education Committee, raising issues of importance for a safe workplace culture,” Dr Steel said.
