Meeting with His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd)
His Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd), Her Excellency Mrs Linda Hurley
On Monday 29 June 2020, representatives of Painaustralia including our Chair Em Professor Ian Chubb AC FAA, director Mr Ben Tansley and CEO Carol Bennett had the privilege of a private meeting with his Excellency General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) and Her Excellency Mrs Linda Hurley at Government House in Canberra.
As a former serving General in the Australian Army, His Excellency is only too aware of the impact of chronic pain for servicemen and women and military veterans. The broader implications for all Australians and the need for evidence based cost effective treatment and support options were discussed as well as the role of Painaustralia as Australia’s peak body working to improve the lives of millions who live with pain conditions and their families and carers. We look forward to maintaining our relationship with their Excellencies to advance the awareness and recognition of pain management.
