Dr Chris Reid

The anaesthetic community of Western Australia has been deeply saddened by the tragic news of the recent death of Dr Christopher Gordon Reid.

Christopher was born and educated in Auckland, New Zealand, where he was an excellent student, and a first class sportsman. During his medical student days he spent a year playing professional cricket in Middlesex in England, and he travelled widely through Europe, Asia and Africa before coming to Perth in 1990 as an intern at Royal Perth Hospital.

He joined the Western Australian rotational teaching programme in Anaesthesia in 1993, passed his primary examination in 1994, and completed his examinations in 1997. He went on to become a capable and caring paediatric anaesthetist at Princess Margaret Hospital for Children.

He will be sadly missed by all who knew him. We extend our sincere sympathy to his family and close friends.
