Queen's Birthday Honours
Recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honors list.
He has been director of the of the infectious diseases unit of the Canberra Hospital since 1987 and director of the hospital's Microbiology Department since 1996. He is best known for his work to fight the spread of deadly superbug infections and has been a leading critic of some aspects of the health system's response to swine flu.
So why should I blog about him? He was on a second team of doctors who treated me in Canberra Hospital.
He consulted me while in hospital, and afterwards until he concluded my condition was sufficiently improved.
Congratulations Doctor, or as we now rightly know, Professor.
