  • Speaker 1: At the end of each healthcare awards, one can’t help but be overwhelmed and impressed by the commitment, the dedication and the good care that is provided by those involved in public healthcare delivery right across Victoria.

    Speaker 2: It’s actually quite humbling to work in a sector where there are so many people that are driven by their values, who are really motivated and committed to do what they do.

    Speaker 3: It’s not about the money. It’s not about the accolades. It is about helping other people from one situation and stepping up to [do] better.

    Speaker 4: I see staff who are called by local council that there is somebody sleeping on the foreshore at St Kilda and they’ve been there for a couple of days and our staff will go and engage with them. And, if on the first day, individuals – they don’t want to talk, they don’t. We go back the second day and sometimes the third and the fourth.

    Speaker 1: Healthcare is a complex service and, I think, what we’ve found throughout the healthcare awards, overwhelmingly, people go the extra mile to support and treat those who are dependent on them.

    Speaker 5: I found resources within myself that I actually didn’t think I had, so I’ve been able to develop, not only as a professional, which is also very important, but as an individual.

    Speaker 6: I’ve learnt that sometimes things take a lot longer than what you expect but just keep on at it and things do change and, I think, that we’ve seen that very much with our program.
