Congratulations to 2021 award winner, Dr Sally Wharton.

The Dr Ray Hader Award for Pastoral Care acknowledges the significant contribution by an ANZCA fellow or trainee to the welfare of one or more ANZCA trainees. The nature of such a contribution may be direct, in the form of support and encouragement, or indirect through educational initiatives or other strategies.

2021 award recipient Dr Sally Wharton FANZCA (NSW) was nominated by her peers for her contribution to the welfare of many trainees and fellows at the Children's Hospital, Westmead. In making the award, ANZCA Council noted Dr Wharton’s direct personal support and encouragement of trainees; the development of a formal mentoring program within the department; and raising awareness of mental health issues and the value of personal and team support for trainees and fellows.
