Campaign puts immunisation on the right track

Following the 2016-17 Immunisation Bike Competition, WentWest as the Western Sydney Primary Health Network (WSPHN) is pleased to announce the winning practices and parents of the four month campaign.

From October through to January, WentWest in collaboration with general practices across western Sydney, gave families the opportunity to be rewarded for immunising their child. Those that had their child immunised through a participating practice over the four month period were entered into the draw to win one of 24 bikes and a helmet.

This year’s campaign saw over 190 general practices across western Sydney participating, collectively immunising more than 2220 children region-wide.

Since it was introduced in 2011, the initiative has seen a continued increase in participating practices and more than 4,700 children immunised throughout its time.

Details of the prize giving ceremony will be announced soon. Click here to see the list of winners.
