All Pinnacle practice staff are invited to attend our birthday celebration on Tuesday 19 November in Hamilton.
Attendance to the birthday event is free, RSVPs will be essential to reserve your seats. Subsidies are available to help practices with the costs - and we've placed our celebration in the HiNZ event week to help you maximise your visit to Hamilton. Watch for more details in Pin Points or speak to your practice support person to learn more.
With HiNZ events drawing many visitors to Hamilton throughout the week we encourage you to book accommodation as soon as possible to ensure you don't miss out.
We know we have some of the highest calibre people and practices found anywhere in New Zealand. We want to recognise those who ensure the people of the Midlands region are getting some of the very best health outcomes possible - because great primary care changes lives.
Our award categories are broad because rather than tell you what good looks like we'd like to hear your thoughts on who and why. And it's a party right? No one wants to fill in a complicated form or write a 2,000 word essay so simply drop us an email and the Pin Inc board will take it from there. Good luck everyone - and we look forward to seeing many of you on the night.
