Help us find our Nurse of the Year

Do you have an exceptional nurse at your treatment centre? 🌟🏥🩸

This year, in the lead up to World Thalassaemia Day on the 8th of May and International Nurses Day on the 12th of May, we are calling on you to help us recognise and celebrate the devoted nurses who dedicate their lives to caring for our patients and their families. We see these tireless workers who provide high quality, respectful treatment, often in challenging circumstances and would like to say thank you.

YOU can nominate a nurse in your treatment centre and say thank you for the work they do. Just tell us in 500 words or less, why you believe this nurse deserves to be recognised as our 2022 Nurse of the Year.

You can nominate your nurse of the year here or download a printable copy here and send via post – PO Box M120, Camperdown NSW 2050. Nominations close 5pm – 30 April 2022.

The winning nomination will be judged by the Thalassaemia and Sickle Cell Society of NSW Committee and announced on International Nurses Day – May 12.

Thank you, George Houssos, President.



Who can nominate a nurse? 
Nominations will be accepted from thalassaemia, sickle cell and haemoglobinopathy patients, their carers and family members. We will also accept nominations from staff members who work with haemoglobinopathy nurses, however they cannot nominate themselves.

Will my nomination be confidential?
If you wish to keep your name and any personal details confidential, please tick our confidentiality box on the nomination form.

Can I nominate more than one nurse?
Of course! Share the recognition and fill out an individual nomination for each nurse. Unfortunately, we are unable to take nominations for ‘teams’ at this team.

Who is eligible? 
Nominees must be a qualified individual currently employed as an enrolled or registered nurse in Australia, who works within haemoglobinopathy treatment.
