As we welcome the new year we are also happy to welcome some new people and say good bye to some old friends. A respiratory and sleep scientist, Bruce Gordon, joins us all the way from sunny Scotland.

We are also sad to see our wonderful administration and booking manager Anna Corbett, who you may have had the pleasure of talking to while booking in a patient, leave to pursue her career as a midwife.

Speaking of babies, we are about to celebrate two new additions: Shivawn Simons, our resident RN and sleep scientist due within a few weeks as well Tamarin Wells, the general manager not far behind.
