With so much going on in the world right now, it’s more important than ever to take time to celebrate the good things, wonderful achievements and terrific people in our own community.

Like Community Health Nurses Dianne Gibbs and Heather Daly, who this week were celebrated by their friends and colleagues for 30 years of service at BRHS.

“These two amazing ladies have been so dedicated to our community for the past 30 years,” said Community Health Manager Kate Kapolos. “They are a wealth of knowledge, support, guidance and mentoring to their colleagues past and present.”

Collectively Di and Heather have been instrumental in Community Health at BHRS, providing breast care and cervical screening services, health promotion and school nursing, and supporting young mums.

All this in addition to their time on the acute wards, and in district nursing and midwifery – these ladies have helped deliver a lot of babies in their time!

BRHS Ross Street staff and executives celebrated the milestone yesterday with a (physically-distanced) morning tea, where Di and Heather were presented with their 30 Years badges.

Congratulations Di and Heather on your remarkable careers and service to the East Gippsland community.
