At the South Island Alliance, we love sharing stories about how small changes can lead to great improvements…
South Canterbury Health Care Awards
As a sector, we spend a lot of time thinking about how we can do more for our community, how to improve our services and health outcomes. It is fabulous to take a moment to celebrate the inspirational people who have made a genuine difference to our community.
These awards recognise people for contributing to better health outcomes for the people of South Canterbury and we hope, they also inspire the rest of us to reach our personal and team potential in what is extremely challenging (but very meaningful) work.
The Chairperson’s award was won by Dr Robin Carey. Robin is a trusted and well-respected clinician and colleague and by all accounts, an exceptional leader within our health system. In her role as Clinical Director for our Emergency department, she is constantly looking at improvement opportunities, quietly making a genuine difference in the department and our patients. She has initiated and supported many projects which support ED service improvements and integration of ED and other services and parts of our health system.Robyn has had a key role in our performance results for the ED department, which is an exemplar in health service targets across Australasia.
