The start of my grey hair
At one point I got elected chairman of the Medical Staff Council of Hornsby Hospital. I sent an email out to the 130 Doctor specialists working there and asked them what the Hospital needed. About 20 people replied and they all said 'a new hospital'. So, that is what I and a dedicated group of doctors at the hospital set out to acheive. The next day I issued a press release. This was the start of a remarkable learning curve on how to bend political will to a good cause. The hospital is now rebuilt.
