Do you know an outstanding professional, volunteer, team or organisation involved in delivering palliative care in WA?

There is still time nominate them for the Palliative Care in WA Awards 2023 sponsored by Silverchain.

After numerous requests for more time to nominate, and recognising the pressure everyone is under right across the sector, we have extended the deadline for nominations to Friday 15 September.

We have also expanded the Outstanding Palliative Care Volunteer Award to include teams as well as individuals.

To nominate, all you need to do is fill out the nomination form which asks you to provide a short paragraph for each of the four criteria. Finalists will be chosen for each category and only then will any supporting information be requested.

There has never been a better time for us to celebrate and showcase the professionalism, dedication, innovation and teamwork shown everyday by those professional and volunteers who care for Western Australians who are at end-of-life.

The categories in the Palliative Care in WA Awards 2023 sponsored by Silverchain are:

  • Outstanding Palliative Care Professional Award – sponsored by Paywise
  • Outstanding Palliative Care Volunteer Award – sponsored by St John of God Health Care
  • Outstanding Team Delivering Holistic Palliative Care Award – sponsored by Carers WA
