Portland District Health staff members and volunteers are well respected for their caring and helpful nature, and now there’s a way to formally recognise their service and commitment.

Portland District Health staff members and volunteers are well respected for their caring and helpful nature, and now there’s a way to formally recognise their service and commitment.

Patients, visitors and staff are being encouraged to nominate an individual or team who have demonstrated exceptional effort and commitment.

PDH employees and volunteers are eligible with already 17 nominations received from the public.

PDH is encouraging more nominations from the community for employees or volunteers who make a difference to your experience at the health service.

This could include demonstrating exceptional effort and commitment in areas such as person-centred care, assistance to others including patients, visitors and staff, team work, and behaviours that demonstrate Portland District Health values, or implementing system-wide improvements.

CEO Chris Giles said the award aims to recognise the commitment of PDH staff and volunteers to patient care and customer service.

It recognises staff and volunteers for their contribution and aims to foster teamwork and collaborations, Ms Giles said.

Ultimately it will enhance staff and volunteer engagement and reinforce positive behaviours.

To nominate someone is as easy as filling out an online form on the PDH website, completing a recognition postcard available at PDH, or it can be as informal as a call or even a hand written letter to our human resource department.

The staff/volunteers recognised can be seen on the PDH website at http://www.swarh2.com.au/pdh/content/pdh-recognition-award-recipients.

There is a recognition stand at the main entrance of PDH, displaying all staff and volunteers that have already received nomination awards.

Recent nominations have been received for the Urgent Care Centre staff. "Everyone was so kind, supportive and caring", the nomination said. "Congratulations on having such a great team."

Human Resources Coordinator Rebecca Skaer was praised for her "diligence and can-do approach to helping people," and the District Nursing Service nurses were thanked for "professionalism, skills, sunny and cheery outlooks and respect".
