Archibald has knock-on effect in Murwillumbah

The Tweed Regional Gallery is hosting the Archibald Prize and local business people say the event is giving the town of Murwillumbah a significant economic boost.

This year’s annual ceremony went virtual for the NSW Health Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards.

Last week the eighth Excellence in Nursing & Midwifery Awards were held online allowing the community to take part in a COVID safe way.

‘Judging the finalists and winners of this key nursing and midwifery event is always a challenging task. There is so much to be proud of and celebrate. 2020 is no exception.’

‘This is the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife. It has been a year like no other where the contribution of nurses and midwives has been highlighted during our response to COVID-19.

‘If there was ever a time to pause and celebrate the 53,000 nurses and midwives of NSW – who make up more than 50 per cent of the State’s public health workforce – it is now.’

This year, two of the seven categories feature finalists from the Northern NSW Local Health District: Nursing/Midwifery Team of the Year – The Tweed Hospital Medical Team 2 and Nurse of the Year – Lismore Base Hospital Clinical Risk Resource Nurse Anna Law.

The Excellence in Nursing and Midwifery Awards were streamed at on November 26 on the NSW Health website: www.health.nsw.gov.au/nursing/enma.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.
