Thoughts for Toni Hoffman, Australia's Local Hero 2006

1 July 2010

The National Australia Day Council wishes to acknowledge Toni Hoffman, Australia’s Local Hero 2006, and her very significant contribution to the recent verdict in the Dr Jayant Patel case.

In a time of enormous need, Toni showed courage and ethical conviction as the whistleblower advocating for patient safety at the Bundaberg Hospital in Queensland.
