The whole Neonatal community in New Zealand send their very heartiest congratulations to Sir Richard Taylor on being named Kiwibank New Zealander of the Year for 2012.

Sir Richard and his wife Lady Tania are Patrons of The Neonatal Trust.

We are delighted that Sir Richard’s selfless and generous contribution to New Zealand has been acknowledged in such a manner. Fortuitously for us, we are blessed to have his and Tania’s unstinting support as our Patrons so we know first-hand of their generosity and support in so many ways in making a difficult start to life that little bit  easier…

So, congratulations again on this accolade – it is so deserved!

Michael Meads
