Celebrating our Specialist of the Year

Congratulations to Respiratory Physician Dr Bassem Dawood on receiving the Epping Private Hospital 'Specialist of the Year' award.


Dr Bassem Dawood has been a major contributor to Epping Private Hospital's first year of operations and it was with great excitement that CEO, Dr Malak Sukkar, was able to recognise these contributions in presenting Dr Dawood with the Epping Private Hospital Specialist of the Year Award.

A very deserving recipient, Dr Dawood has been instrumental over the hospital's journey and brings a wealth of experience from his appointments at the Northern Hospital and honorary Physician at the Austin.

Extensively experienced in all facets of respiratory and sleep medicine, Dr Dawood manages various respiratory disorders including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchiectasis and interstitial lung disease (ILD). He also has a special interest in the diagnosis and management of complex sleep disorders as well as sub-specialty interests are in the early detection and surveillance of lung cancer.

Dr Dawood has also held a very important role as the Inaugral Chair of the Medical Advisory Committee (MAC) in 2019.

We thank Dr Dawood for his wonderful contributions in 2019.

In 2020, Dr Joshua Butt has been elected as the Chair of MAC and we look forward to working with Josh in this new role in the new year.
