What is your job title?
NSW Health Pathology Courier
How long have you been with NSWHP?
What attracted you to the role?
The diversity of tasks, places and people I see every day. No two days are the same, and this job means I travel around the city of Newcastle, regional Hunter Valley and even further up the north coast to Port Macquarie to transport precious cargo. Everywhere I go there are new people to meet and interesting things to learn about the journey of samples from collection to analysis.
What do you like best about your job?
Before I started, I didn’t realise how much work goes into making sure all the thousands of samples collected every day get to the right place in critical time frames. The amazing people I work with, as well as the team that analyses the samples, work tirelessly to keep pathology testing running for the people of NSW. I enjoy being part of a large team that quietly keeps a very important part of the health system running on a day-to-day basis.
What are you most looking forward to over the holidays?
Spending time catching up with family and friends and taking my dog to the beach!
