These pages contain profiles of medical and dental practitioners who have held senior staff positions at Wellington Hospital since it first opened on the Newtown site in 1881.

In some instances, little information has been available to me, but wherever possible, a brief description of the contributions made to the hospital is included.  In addition, I have attempted to give context to each appointment by describing the relevant staff structure of the times plus other contemporary comments of possible interest.

Despite my best efforts, I may have overlooked some who should be included. I welcome any information that would add to the accuracy and detail of these pages.

An archive such as this is never finished. It is almost complete for appointments prior to 1981, thus documenting the first 100 years of senior staff at the Newtown public hospital.

If you are unsure about when a doctor of interest was appointed, use the SEARCH box top right of the screen.
