Extract from ABC news service:

‘The Australia Day 2016 honours list recognises more than 800 Australians across a wide range of professions and industries, from all states and territories.

Often, the best thing about the awards is the way they shine a spotlight on those who quietly do remarkable things to assist others.

Dr Graeme Clugston is a great example.

Clugston is the Medical Director at the very busy Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital in southern Nepal.

The hospital where he works is one of the world’s busiest leprosy hospitals’. RN Breakfast.
