St John NT is calling on the Northern Territory community to nominate paramedics, volunteers and members of their staff who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.
The St John NT Excellence Awards celebrate and recognise staff and volunteers who demonstrate excellence in leadership or clinical practice, an outstanding level of care, professionalism and compassion for members of the Northern Territory community.
Nominations are now open until Thursday, 30 September 2021.
This year marks the 22nd year of the Awards. St John NT CEO Judith Barker said she looked forward to the Awards each year as a way to celebrate the organisation’s valuable contribution to the Northern Territory.
“If the last eighteen months has taught us has anything, it would be about perseverance and compassion. Healthcare workers globally have been on the frontline of a very disruptive and challenging period in our history. Our staff and volunteers have responded to this with the highest degree of professionalism and care for our community.
“These Awards provide an opportunity to recognise that and say thank you, we value the amazing contribution you bring to our service, the leadership you provide to your colleagues and peers and the care you provide to people in need.
“Whether it be our response to a Triple Zero (000) call, volunteers at major events, or first aid training, our team is committed to caring for Territorians and being there when we’re needed most.”
Nominations can be made easily online and will close at midnight on Thursday 30 September. Award recipients will be announced at an awards ceremony at Parliament House in November.
Categories include St John NT paramedics, Emergency Medical Dispatchers, Patient Transport Officers, corporate services staff and junior and adult volunteers.
The 2021 Awards are kindly supported by the Northern Territory Government, Rotary Club of Darwin Sunrise, Australasian College of Paramedicine, Charles Darwin University, AANT, Area9, Colemans Printing and Bunnings.
