Dr Hay started his military career at the 1st Health Support Battalion with the Parachute Surgical Team – a small scale, highly mobile hospital, able to respond within hours to any emergency, anywhere in the world, specifically by parachute. He found his most challenging trip was to Afghanistan, where he led a small medical team that integrated with an American helicopter based
retrieval team. They were responsible for retrieving injured soldiers from the combat zone and evacuating them back to the military hospitals.

Dr Hay is a self-confessed health and fitness advocate who can be found in the gym or the surf. He is also an ambassador for the Beer the Beautiful Truth campaign.
