Meet Emily, one of NSW Health Pathology’s newest courier drivers.

Get to know Emily

What is your job title?
NSW Health Pathol­o­gy Courier

How long have you been with NSWHP?
Four months

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!

Are you inter­est­ed in join­ing the NSWHP team?
