Text:Staff changes in New Zealand's biggest hospital unit dealing with HIV infection will see its Director step down and his deputy take a year's sabbatical. Rod Ellis-Pegler, who has headed Auckland Hospital's Infectious Diseases department for the entire length of the HIV epidemic, says that at age 60 he is a little tired of administration work and is looking forward to concentrating more on medicine. He will continue to work within the Infectious Diseases department and the role of Director will pass to Andrew Woodhouse, an existing member of the ID team. Concurrently, Mark Thomas, deputy director of the department, will take a year's sabbatical during 2003, to “concentrate on the university part” of his job. During the year to come Thomas's patients will be attended to by Dr Simon Briggs who is currently a infections diseases registrar at the hospital.
