Please be kind to yourselves.”


“Sometimes it's hard to accept praise. You might not feel like a hero. You may feel tired, anxious, frustrated. Doesn't matter. When you take the actions you take to care for people in the community your actions have outcomes. More people recover, people that don't recover get a fair shot at surviving, affected people and their families know you had their back and they feel hugely grateful to you. That all has a knock-on effect of supporting the emotional and psychological stability of the community outside of the hospital or direct line of affect. It literally holds up the community in my view. Persisting when the going's tough, that's heroic. Thank you.”

“Thanking and acknowledging remarkable Queenslanders is the most inspiring aspect of being Governor of our State. There are few to whom our contemporary society owes a greater debt of gratitude than our healthcare workforce. As I remarked in my 2020 ANZAC Day Address, dedicated to military nurses, our health professionals have all proven throughout COVID-19 to be a special kind of angel – professional to the core, tough, resilient, enterprising, and compassionate. There is more to be done, but Queenslanders have been assured by the calm professionalism of the health response to date. It is a cohesive State which acknowledges the importance of these contributions, as they really do help define who we are as Queenslanders. As Governor, I therefore thank the Ipswich Hospital Foundation for enabling us all to express our support by sending a ‘Hero-gram’. To all frontline heroes, and their magnificent support contingent, thank you on behalf of all Queenslanders – you have Kaye’s and my enduring respect and gratitude.”
