26 Aug 2020
Nepean Blue Mountains Local Health District is proud to have two finalists at the 2020 NSW Health Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards.
Our nominees Pia Lambert (Nurse of the Year) and Cindy Partridge (Midwife of the Year) are both honoured to have been acknowledged for their clinical practice and leadership.
As Acting Clinical Nurse Unit Manager at Lithgow Community Health Centre, Pia’s exceptional leadership skills have seen her lead the nursing team with confidence, professionalism and calm precision during difficult times.
Pia has supported Lithgow’s Primary Care and Community Health Chronic & Complex nursing team to continue their nursing service for the community, while ensuring staff safety, during the 2019 Lithgow bushfires and the current COVID-19 pandemic.
“I was surprised but absolutely delighted to hear of the nomination,” says Pia who says her passion for nursing is matched by her colleagues.
“The team of community nurses at Lithgow is a very close-knit and supportive one. They’re very passionate about the care of their clients and each other and are embedded in this community.”
This year’s awards will be a virtual ceremony with winners announced on 26 November 2020.
