Thank you Professor Rudd                                     

Professor Tony Rudd will retire from his role as SSNAP Clinical Director at the end of the week. Tony has been instrumental to the success of SSNAP and its predecessors over the past 20 years. Through his work, Tony has impacted the lives of countless patients and families by direct clinical care, supporting others who treat patients, and planners who organise and structure services. 

We hope you will all join us in wishing Tony a happy and successful retirement, and best wishes for the future.
