The Health Consumer Excellence Awards were created to honour the everyday heroes in health in WA, from the administrator to the clinician. We also recognise health consumers who go out of their way to make a difference to our health system.
Nominations for 2021 are now closed. Our Awards Ceremony was held on Thursday 29th April. Due to COVID restrictions, we had to take the difficult decision to make this an online event. On the plus side, this allowed more people to attend, as the face to face event had booked out.
Please download the awards booklet for details on all the 2021 nominees.
