Annette Walker Award

Be part of the effort to recognise an outstanding contribution.

On 30th December 2012 RAHC lost one of its most valued team members, RAHC Placement Manager, Annette Walker.

Annette had been with RAHC for 3 years starting as a Placement Consultant and assuming the Placement Manager role in 2010 and worked to build the number of GPs that RAHC placed. Annette built strong and lasting relationships with health professionals and members of the health services she dealt with.

Annette had a passion for the work of RAHC. She lived our motto – Be part of the effort. She was central to encouraging Health Professionals to take a chance, filling them with confidence that they had the skills needed to close the gap and that they would be supported throughout their placement.

Some years ago the RAHC team sought an appropriate way to remember her and her contribution to RAHC. A recognition that embodies the qualities she brought to her work - passion, commitment to excellence and a ‘can do’ attitude. In 2013, RAHC was delighted to launch the first Annette Walker Award which recognised the outstanding contribution by a RAHC Health Professional during the year.

We hope you can find a few minutes to nominate a RAHC Health Professional for this years’ award who you believe deserves to be recognised for an outstanding contribution beyond their normal responsibilities.

Kind Regards
Tanya Brunt
