Hutt Valley DHB Annual Quality Awards for 2019 were announced at a ceremony on Thursday 14 November.
Every year we recognise people and teams within Hutt Valley making a difference for patients and our communities.
The awards are open to HVDHB staff and our primary care partners in the Hutt Valley.
They are designed to encourage, recognise and celebrate innovative quality improvements within the DHB and primary healthcare across the Hutt Valley Health System.
We feel privileged to have the opportunity to formally acknowledge all the work that supports the continued advancement of a positive quality and safety culture.
Judges were thrilled with the number and quality of the nominations from all areas of the DHB and across primary care in the Hutt Valley this year. Nominations were up on previous years and the quality of the nominations exceeded the judge’s expectations.
