PAH Stroke Consultant appointed to Co-Clinical Chair Position

21 June 2019

Stroke Consultant and leader of the stroke unit at the Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH), Dr Darshan Shah, has been appointed as the Co-Clinical Chair for the Statewide Stroke Clinical Network (SSCN).

Dr Shah and his team have been challenging the status quo and his appointment reflects his work into stroke treatment and prevention, championed at the PAH, through achievements such as record door to thrombolysis times and optimisation of the Endovascular Clot Retrieval (ECR) service across Metro South. 

“I’m very humbled by this appointment and excited to have commenced this new role with the SSCN which would not have been possible without the excellent support from my colleagues, allied health and nursing staff I work with on day-to-day bases and the Director,” said Dr Shah.

“I am passionate about the advancement of stroke treatment and prevention and believe this new position with SSCN will enable me to progress this further both at the PAH and throughout the state.”

Dr Shah returned to PAH three years ago after being a trainee here with aims to further enhance the national and international standing of the Stroke Unit at PAH under his continued leadership.

“I am happy to represent PAH and the state-wide network to continue leading the charge for stroke patients in Queensland.”
