National 360’s Allied Health Awards Achievements

Celebrating and acknowledging the incredible work our allied health clinicians do is something we love here at National 360. When our Occupational Therapists, Speech Pathologists, Physiotherapists, Behaviour Support Practitioners, Early Childhood Practitioners, and our wonderful support staff kick goals, we love to cheer them on! Whilst our weekly Shout Outs, and Monthly, Quarterly and Annual 360 Champion Awards mean we celebrate success internally, it is always so thrilling to have our therapists recognised by external bodies highlighting that the work they do has impact, and is industry leading. That is why we were overjoyed to have 9 therapists/teams recognised as finalists across 8 award categories for the 2023 Allied Health Awards!

The Allied Health Awards are all about acknowledging the excellence and hard work of Australia’s allied health professionals, and this year National 360 really made a mark, coming home with 2 wins!! Congratulations to Natasha Stopp for being awarded Physiotherapist of the Year, and Kate Hughes for being awarded Speech Pathologist of the Year!
