Psychiatrist to lead Tasmanian Health Service

Psychiatrist Dr David Alcorn has been appointed CEO of the Tasmanian Health Service.

Dr Alcorn (pictured), who was the Executive Director of the Royal Melbourne Hospital, officially starts in his role in February.   

He replaces interim CEO Dr Anne Brand, who was the subject of fierce criticism from AMA Tasmania because she practises Reiki therapy on the side.
