Dear Greenie,

On behalf of all Queensland Fellows and trainees we would like to pass on our congratulations on your recent award of the Medal of the Order of Australia for services to emergency medicine and professional organisations.

As probably the longest serving ED Director in Queensland your resilience is something to be admired.

You have maintained a long commitment to teaching and training and registrar supervision for many years, at the Gold Coast and as Queensland ACEM censor.

There are many Fellows and current trainees who have been fortunate to work with you and to benefit from your high standards of emergency medicine teaching and practice.

Again congratulations, and we hope the fish continue to bite.
