Pictures promote patient care during pandemic

A photography exhibition by local artist Karyn Leong acknowledges the high standards of care by all staff at Djerriwarrh Health Services and extraordinary efforts during COVID-19.

‘I wanted Faces of Care to represent, honour and thank workers from Djerriwarrh Health Services and normalise and promote the use of face masks within the wider community,’ Ms Leong said.

The exhibition features 20 staff from various departments with each sharing reflections and experiences during Djerriwarrh’s pandemic response.

‘The challenges have been immense and, without the dedication, commitment and teamwork from staff, we would not have been able to achieve what we have,’ said Chief Executive Officer Belinda Scott.

‘With thanks to Karyn Leong, the Faces of Care exhibition is an excellent opportunity to document our response to the pandemic and publicly acknowledge the incredible effort from all staff.’

Faces of Care was on public display at Bacchus Marsh’s Lerderderg Library during December and January.
