The Dame Mary Perkins Award

Do you have a colleague who gives exceptional customer service or who stands out clinically? Help us to celebrate their work by nominating them for The Dame Mary Perkins Award for Outstanding Patient Care.

The Dame Mary Perkins Award recognises an individual or group of individuals within a store who have delivered an exceptional act of patient care in the last 12 months.

Nominations are open to anyone within the Specsavers network, both the retail and optometry team across Australia and New Zealand.

Who can forget our 2021 winners, Marielle from Bankstown, NSW, who correctly identified swollen optic nerves in her three-year-old patient, resulting in emergency surgery; and Celeste from Rotorua, NZ who was recognised for providing an ocular health screening program to a small Māori community that had limited access to eye care services! Both were awarded for going above and beyond and changing the lives of their patients through better sight.

 At SCC this year, we will be awarding two overall winners, one for each Australia and New Zealand, as well as a runner up for each country.

Nominations are now open and close on 22 July 2022. A shortlist of nominees will be released in early August, with winners announced live at SCC in September.

(Please note: shortlisted nominees will need to be available for interviews and potential filming in August 2022).

We encourage both Partners and team members to nominate their colleagues through our Nomination Form or by emailing michelle.du@specsavers.com.
