We would like to acknowledge his commitment to our profession, with this award.

Service Award

To acknowledge years of service to the College.

 Presented to Ken Gall, who has retired from Perfusion.

 Ken has been an avid supporter of the college for the past 30 years.
He served as secretary for 6 of those years, and has been described by Darryl McMillan “As a man of integrity”. During his time as secretary, Ken  knew every rule of the society/college and how and when is should be used.
Anyone who has ever been secretary will appreciate the many hours of work that is involved with this position; he also convened the ASM in Newcastle in 2009.

Ken had a fascination for things that spin, not only pumps in his career but also his hobby and his amazing woodturning skills, and we hope he continues to enjoy his hobby for many years to come.

We all wish to thank Ken with this award and hope that he and Kay enjoy his retirement.
