August 2020 – Tamsin Miles, Social Worker, Clinical Support Services

“Tamsin works tirelessly behind the scenes to coordinate complex birth plans for pregnant women – many of whom are living without secure accommodation while they navigate challenging life circumstances.

Despite the pressure of her role, Tamsin is always compassionate and generous towards others. She models each of the Auckland DHB values in her everyday work. For example, actively supporting her Oranga Tamariki colleagues, doing what she can to partner together with them to secure the best outcomes.

Tamsin is the ultimate team player; consistently striving to improve the services she is a part of. She is exceptionally diligent and kind in her approach to her work. Due to the nature of her role, she is unlikely to be thanked directly by those who she works so tirelessly for, as they will never know what their experience would have been if she hadn't advocated for opportunities, resources and a timely, supportive plan to be in place wherever possible.

In so many ways Tamsin is a local hero – her generosity and manaaki as a colleague, her high level of professionalism and embodiment of angamua, her capacity to coordinate and effectively team together with multiple parties, and her welcoming open door to anyone who seeks her assistance.”
