Cogratulations to all the winners and nominees. We have an excellent standard of nurses and midwives in this city. It’s just a pity that they are not valued and appreciated more by the bureaucrats who make their work so difficult and in many cases, morale so poor.

Congratulations to them all. I guess this shows that despite underfunding and mis-management of the health system, there are always going to be people who step up to the plate and provide excellent service. Well done.
