Dr Ian Taylor graduated in medicine from UWA in 1980, and after post graduate training at Fremantle Hospital, moved with his wife Diane and their small children to Geraldton to join the GMG in 1984 “for a few years”. Thirty years later, they are still here except the kids have grown up and most of them now live in Perth!
