This month Leading Steps Paediatric Clinic celebrates 20 years since a young paediatrician named Glenn Harte arrived at the Gold Coast. Since that time Dr Harte has made a difference to the lives of over 40,000 children and families.

In 20 years Dr Harte has seen a lot of change, especially with technology.  From “brick-like” mobiles to smart phones that can access world wide medical knowledge, and “rooms of patient notes that are now stored on a usb drive and are accessible in seconds.”

One area Dr Harte says hasn’t changed is the commitment of parents to do their best for their children.

“The thing that has always impressed me over the years is wisdom and motivation of well-meaning parents and their commitment to the health and care of their children,” said Dr Harte

Dr Harte is admired around Leading Steps and the hospital for his kindness, dedication, clinical knowledge and exceptional ability with a spreadsheet.

His patients and colleagues are looking forward to working with him for the next 20 years.
