Many of Australia's medicos volunteer in third world countries. I'm glad they all eventually get honoured by Australia Day Honours. Makes me proud!

So glad this has been reported as most people are unaware what this group of Drs have been doing for years. They give their time plus they pay the hospital out of their own pocket for every patient they treat.
Amazing people and each should have already won Australian /s of the year. Truly deserving of the title !!!
