Why Submit?

Entering the Primary Health Care Excellence Awards has a number of benefits….


Entering a submission in the 2018 Excellence Awards is a valuable learning experience. The Awards offer the opportunity to delve deeper into your project and learn from your work and others. The benefits of researching, writing and supporting your entries are significant. You’ll develop strong, compelling stories of achievement that can be used elsewhere to tell your story.  Each systematic step you go through brings you closer to continued improvement.  

Each of the 12 finalists for 2018 will work with our talented in-house videographer on a 2-3 minute video that will be presented at the Awards Gala Dinner on 20 September 2018. Finalists will then receive a copy of their video for promotion as they see fit.
