In the Autumn 2024 edition of The NSW Doctor we shine a light on the flatlining NSW health budget, we discuss what doctors can do to combat health misinformation and explore the issues surrounding medical indemnity. The cost of inaction on sleep issues is calculated by health researcher Michael Mosley and we share tips on how to navigate life as a new specialist with anaesthetist Dr Katherine Jeffrey.

The magazine pays tribute to highly esteemed and much-loved former AMA (NSW) President Clinical Professor Saxon Smith.
