Stuart Ayres Congratulates Local Winner Of 2020 Excellence In Nursing And Midwifery Awards
The ceremony was streamed across NSW, allowing communities and colleagues to come together to celebrate nursing and midwifery.
The eighth Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards were presented across seven categories by Minister for Health and Medical Research, Brad Hazzard, Secretary of NSW Health, Ms Elizabeth Koff, the Chief Nursing and Midwifery Officer, Ms Jacqui Cross. Ms Louisa Hope, the consumer representative, presented the Healing Hearts Award.
“Cindy is a deserving winner of this award in an exceptionally challenging year,” Mr Ayres said.
“Every day she demonstrates the commitment and skills of nurses and midwives.
“This is particularly important as we celebrate the International Year of the Nurse and Midwife.”
Cindy provides caseload midwifery services for Aboriginal women at Nepean Hospital in Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District.
Her dedication in aiming for better outcomes for Indigenous women is outstanding. She is woman centred, culturally sensitive and innovative in her approach to providing midwifery care.
“It wasn’t until I had my own babies that I saw the impact that midwifery had,” Cindy said.
“I’m really passionate about Aboriginal maternity care and making sure that women feel safe. Making sure they feel heard, and we are culturally sensitive towards their needs,” Cindy said.
There are more than 53,000 nurses and midwives in NSW, making up 51 per cent of the public health workforce.
Ms Cross congratulated all the finalists and winners.
“There is a lot to be proud of in the nurses and midwives of NSW,” she said.
“The diversity of where nurses and midwives work and what they do is truly remarkable. These Awards give us the opportunity to showcase and celebrate exceptional nursing and midwifery care.
“Congratulations to Cindy on her 2020 Award, and on behalf of NSW Health I thank you for your continued dedication and enormous contributions to the health outcomes of patients and communities this year.”
