While the annual MIRI celebrations were quieter this year, the poster competition still went ahead showcasing the work being done in our Health Service.
Each year MIRI invite entries that showcase work being to improve patient experience, service delivery or productivity across our health service.
Yesterday the MIRI team along with poster competition entrants came together as the winners were announced and MIRI Grants presented by Jo Whitehead.
MIRI would like to thank Jo, the judging panel Frans Pretorius, Carli Shaw, Matthew Hiskens and all MHHS staff for their continued support.
