Our Patron

Mr Geoffrey Coles AO

Geoffrey’s interest in health care in South Australia is reflected in his positions as past committee member of the Mary Potter Foundation fundraising committee and chairman of the Wheelchair Sports Development Board. Appointed to the Board of the Royal Adelaide Hospital in 1991, he served as chairman from March 1996 to June 2004. He was also a member of the Medvet Science Board for eight years and retired in October 2004, becoming the patron of the Daw House Hospice Foundation in 2004 (now the Laurel Palliative Care Foundation), a role he greatly enjoys and provides many contributions to.
