Whanganui District Health Quality Awards


Ko te manu e kai ana i te matauranga, nōna te ao. 
Ko te manu whai whakaaro, nōna a Rangiatea.


The bird that eats of the tree of knowledge owns the world.
The bird that provokes thought owns the universe.



These awards provide an opportunity to showcase and 
acknowledge staff, services and organisational achievements. 


Every day I see and hear stories from our community about 
successes within our health services. It is important to reflect on the great work happening across the Whanganui region and I invite you to enter or nominate an individual or team who deserves acknowledgement.


Many health workers are humble and perform their vital roles without expecting recognition. These awards provide an opportunity for us to collectively celebrate the success, excellence and innovation of work being done across our community in the health and disability sector.


Our 2019 awards are open to all health and disability service providers or individuals working to benefit the health and wellbeing of people in the Whanganui District Health Board region. From our primary health,
community and non-government organisations to our wonderful volunteers, we look forward to acknowledging your achievements as part of the wider health team.


I encourage you to be bold. No matter how small the idea or achievement, please consider submitting an application across one of the ten categories. I look forward to celebrating these successes with you all on the night of  6 September 2019.
