Outstanding Service to Community Award

The Outstanding Service to the Community Award has been designed to recognise Fellows who have given long and dedicated service to their local community - more often than not unheralded - but without which the standard of surgical care in that community would have been less than society demands.

The NSW Committee recognise a small number of Fellows throughout the year with this award and other awards that seek to say thank you for all the hard work and commitment that our Fellows showed and continue to show which benefits not only their patients, their hospitals, their communities, but it must be highlighted, the incredible benefit that they bring to our College as a whole.

The criteria for these awards consequently are understandably strict as the NSW Committee take this responsibility very seriously and any deserving recipient must meet this standard. However the NSW Committee delights in the opportunity to recognise these Fellows, our colleagues, in their communities here in our great State.

If you know of a Fellow who is retiring or deserving of this award please contact Tenille Moujalli
