Congratulations to Dr Hugh Heggie!

Congratulations to Dr Hugh Heggie, Chief Health Officer NT Health and Deputy Chair of HPANT, who has been selected for inclusion in the Australian COVID-19 Honour Roll. The Honour Roll recognises individuals for their service, achievements and contributions in support of Australia’s response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Dr Heggie continues to successfully lead the NT's response to the COVID-19 pandemic, providing strategic clinical advice that has been critical to decisions surrounding border control, quarantine, testing, contact tracing, hygiene principles and management plans.

Throughout his career, Dr Heggie has demonstrated outstanding service from a clinical, leadership, management and administrative perspective. He was awarded the Public Service Medal in the Australia Day Honours list earlier this year in recognition of his contribution to the health and wellbeing of the people of the Northern Territory.

Thank you for your expectational leadership Dr Heggie and congratulations on this significant achievement!
