Madam Speaker, it was my pleasure to present the award to Jenny as Nurse of the Year. She has been working at Juninga Centre in Coconut Grove for 23 years and I have met with Jenny a number of times at the centre. Her dedication and commitment to Indigenous clients and their families is highly regarded amongst her peers, staff and communities. She delivers the highest quality clinical care, is a role model for the values of respect and diversity and is a natural leader. The other major award of the night is the NT Administrator's Medal for Lifetime Achievement. This year it was awarded to Brycen Brook, Director of Nursing and Midwifery - Primary Health Care, Central Australia Health Service. Brycen started his nursing career in 1973 and has worked throughout the Territory including Alice Springs, Papunya, Ati Curung and Yuendumu. Brycen has inspired Aboriginal people to train and work in the health sector, believing they must be employed as part of the team to deliver comprehensive health care to Aboriginal people. It is an honour to recognise the contribution of nurses and midwives, both as individuals and collectively as work units in the excellent care they provide, enabling high quality health services to be available right across the Territory.
