Unsung heroes of the community are set to swap their scrubs and sterile workplaces for a night of glitz and glamour for the inaugural Geraldton Health Professionals’ Ball.

Regional Training Hubs and the Geraldton Junior Medical Officer Society are putting on the ball on Saturday, November 11, with the aim of making it an annual event on the social calendar.

“The intention of the ball is to celebrate the inaugural year of a complete pathway from penultimate year Rural Clinical School students through to WA Country Health Service internship in Geraldton,” organisers say.

The society was formed this year by junior doctors working at Geraldton Regional Hospital, advocating for staff wellbeing and ensuring the stability of the junior doctor workforce in the region.

The ball is an opportunity to bring the medical community together, with the event open to all staff at Geraldton Regional Hospital and St John of God Geraldton including nurses, doctors, allied health professionals, patient services assistants, executives and administration staff. State and local politicians have also been invited.

The theme for the ball is A Night in Hollywood with a cocktail-style dinner.
