End of 2019 - Thank you


Dear colleagues,


As we are nearing the end of the year, I would like to thank all of you for your contribution to the exceptional healthcare services we provide to the people of Western Sydney.

You can see some of the highlights of the year in Lifeblood 2019 – A year in the life of WSLHD which has captured some of the special moments in the lives of our staff and patients.


I am planning to enjoy some time with family, and will be on leave from 25 December 2019 and returning on 20 January 2020.


Emma McCahon will be Acting Chief Executive from 25 December to 12 January, and Robynne Cooke will be Acting Chief Executive from 13 January to 19 January.


I look forward to working alongside you in 2020 to support the great work you do, and to continue our culture change - we want working at WSLHD to be a positive and rewarding experience for all of our staff.




Graeme Loy

WSLHD Chief Executive
