We have made the difficult decision to postpone the Health Professional of the Year Awards to 2022. We’re first and foremost committed to the health and safety of the community, including the Territory’s health workforce. We’re looking at new dates in 2022.
The awards take place at the Compass conference, which is the premier professional development and networking event for primary health care professionals.
Health professionals can be nominated within the following categories:
- Specialist GP or other doctor working in primary health care
- Nurse and/or midwife
- Allied health practitioner
- Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander health practitioner
There is also an award acknowledging significant contributions to primary health care:
- Primary Health Care Support Person of the Year
One award is presented in each category. The winner of each category receives a $1000 voucher to put towards professional development.
Nominations will re-open in 2022.
The full criteria for the awards can be found in our FAQs.
