From volunteer firefighters to volunteer bagpipe players, rural champions, charity founders and flying doctors — both the royal variety and Qantas variety — a spectrum of GPs have been recognised in the Australia Day Honours List.

They include well-known faces like Professor Charlotte Hespe, one of just seven people on the Order of Australia’s COVID-19 Honour Roll today, and a few former GPs who found themselves in unexpected new careers.
