Judith Barker recognised with Ambulance Service Medal

Congratulations to our recently appointed CEO Judith Barker, one of this year's recipients of the Ambulance Service Medal as part of the Australia Day 2023 Honours List

Judith was recognised for her leadership of St John NT during the pandemic and for her oversight of the organisation's response to operating under global pandemic conditions. These awards are a significant honour which recognise commitment to service and the community. Judith's operational experience was invaluable during the most intense periods of the pandemic as she provided leadership and direction being the Incident Controller for the St John NT Incident Management Team for over two years, remaining operational seven days a week.

Judith's expertise and experience in front line emergency healthcare, particularly in regional and remote communities, are greatly valued and we are delighted she is now part of the RFDS team.

Congratulations Judith!
