Australia Day honour for clinical director

NSLHD Clinical Director of Nuclear Medicine Professor Paul Roach has been named a member of the Order of Australia (AM) for his significant service to nuclear medicine and medical research. 

Paul has been the Head of Nuclear Medicine and Positron Emission Tomography at Royal North Shore Hospital for more than 20 years - a service which is now regarded as one of Australia’s leading nuclear medicine centres.

During this time, Paul has made a significant contribution to imaging, cancer diagnosis and management.

He has juggled clinical and research responsibilities in addition to government and advocacy roles. He is a Clinical Professor at the University of Sydney and has published over 120 peer-reviewed papers. 

Paul welcomed the Australia Day award saying it was a great honour.

“Nuclear medicine is expanding significantly in Australia, particularly for patients with cancer, and it is satisfying to know that I have played a part in helping to facilitate that," he said.

“I have been fortunate to work with a great team at Royal North Shore Hospital as well as with many collaborators and other eminent medical professionals and colleagues both nationally and internationally.”

I am proud of what has been achieved over the years, not only at Royal North Shore Hospital, but also for the specialty of nuclear medicine at a national level
