Dr Lalani receives recognition of outstanding contribution to Rural Health

We are very proud to announce that Dr Lalani was the recipient of an outstanding contribution award at the 2018 Victorian Rural Health Awards in Creswick on Saturday night.

The awards honour exceptional medical specialists, GPs, nurses, Aboriginal health workers, general practices, practice managers, allied health professionals and medical and nursing students working across rural Victoria. Dr Lalani has said it was a lovely evening, attended by around 160 guests including community leaders, politicians and senior CEO’s and staff and Victorian health industry leaders.

This award is extremely well deserved as Dr Lalani has been providing integral clinical services across the Hospital including the Medical Clinic, Acute, Kowree Nursing Home and the Lakes Hostel Hospital, 24 hours a day 7 Days a week for over 5 years. Her dedication to the Hospital, all of its patients, residents, staff and the community as a whole are exemplary.

As well as the wonderful treatment Dr Lalani provides to EDMH patients, her clinical expertise and leadership across all facets of the Hospital is invaluable to the ongoing development of our workforce.

We congratulate Dr Lalani on behalf of the Hospital Board and staff, however please feel free to congratulate her personally as well. I would also like to thank all the locum doctors, hospital staff, and of course her husband Bandu who support Lalani in her role.
