Doctor Ian Smit Is Honoured By The Queen For Giving Free Medical Clinics On His Day Off For Fourteen Years...
one of my favourite places and the southern most area of the famous Ninety Mile Beach.
As well as working for the Kaitaia Hospital he puts the needs of others first as the citation for Queen Elizabeth's Service Medal says in the Queen's Birthday Honours announced recently.
A nurse who's worked with Ian over the years describes him as a really gracious, humble man who tirelessly serves his community.
He aims says Sharen, to make a difference and enhance people's lives, even if it's just taking the time to listen or acknowledge their existence.
A rare thing on this sometimes cold and
uncaring planet we inhabit.
Thankyou and congratulations Ian...
