Nice gestures from businesses for Healthcare workers


A few nice gestures to post out for staff who may not be aware of these during these busy times. 

Here's the current list:

  • McDonald's is providing free coffee and soft drinks for Healthcare workers.

  • Coles is extending its the first hour of trade (7.00 - 8.00 am Tuesdays and Thursdays) for elderly and disabled citizens to Healthcare workers. Show your Staff ID or wear your uniform.

  • Amazon Prime is providing free access to kids and family content. All you need is an account which is also free!

  • Nando's is offering 50% off orders for Healthcare and Emergency staff until 17 April. Arrive in uniform or show your staff ID to redeem the 'Heroes get hungry' offer.

2020 International Year of the Nurse and Midwife


The World Health Organisation has declared 2020 the International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife.

Nursing Now is a global movement seeking to empower nurses as healthcare leaders and to maximise our contribution to healthcare.

The Nightingale Challenge, part of Nursing Now, focuses on equipping the next generation of leaders.

As part of 2020 International Year of the Nurse and the Midwife and the Nursing Now movement, the Nursing and Midwifery Office (NaMO) are partnering with Local Health Districts and Specialty Networks across NSW Health to recognise and maximise the contribution of nurses and midwives to patients, families and to the broader health system.

The areas of focus are:


  • Enabling nurses and midwives to work to their full scope of practice; to deliver improved healthcare, better access to care, improved efficiencies and to enhance the experience of care

  • Strengthening the professional profile by communicating the impact of nursing and midwifery practice to health outcomes and people’s experience of care

  • Supporting and developing leadership at all levels to drive sustainable, compassionate, evidence-based, quality healthcare for all.
