Innovation Awards

Although the FWLHD is the smallest LHD in NSW, the quality and number of projects submitted to the annual Innovation Awards demonstrate our staff’s enthusiasm and commitment to improving the services we provide in an innovative and quality focused manner, and this aligns with the LHD’s vision of “Excellence in Rural and Remote Health”.

Every day, excellent and innovative work is undertaken in our health services across the District to support improvements in patient care and safety. The Far West LHD Innovation Awards provides an important opportunity to share these achievements and innovations with our colleagues.

This page is dedicated to the hard work of the nominees for each year’s awards.  You will find posters and PowerPoint presentations from each awards ceremony.  Please use this page for ideas and inspiration.

If you would like further information about the annual FWLHD Innovation Awards, please contact the Clinical Governance Unit on 8080 1549.
