DANDO, Mr. Hayden: hayden

Hayden is a Perfusionist with an interest in blood management that was sparked a long time ago in deepest darkest South Wales. After training at Papworth in the UK, he came to Australia “for a few months” in 2000. Since then he has worked at St Vincents, Royal North Shore Hospital, a spell in the wilderness working for the corporate sector, and was until a couple of years ago Chief Perfusionist at the Childrens Hospital at Westmead.

In 2006 he started Australian Blood Management that is a clinical services provision company where he now works full time and is occasionally allowed by his team to actually make decisions.

He is a passionate advocate of patient blood management and will take any opportunity to talk about it, preach it and otherwise annoy people into submission.

He recently completed his Masters Degree and is looking for other ways to take up what little time he still has spare. At the moment he is doing his best to turn ABM into a clinical services company with a SCUBA diving problem.

Our General Manager, Nicole, trained and worked as an Autotransfusionist for ABM since 2010, before moving into practice management in 2011 and finally into her role as General Manager.

BAKOS, Dr. Tracytracy

Our Clinical Director, Tracy, completed her Medical and Surgical training in the heart of South Africa in 1998.

Whilst chasing her dream to travel the world she worked throughout the United Kingdom, where her passion for Clinical Haematology and Perioperative Patient Management began. She brought this passion to fruition by completing her Postgraduate Diploma and Fellowship training in Anaesthesiology.

In 2014 she made the exciting decision to immigrate with her family to Sydney. Due to health and family demands, her professional path altered from Clinical Anaesthesiologist to Clinical Medical Advisor. 

In 2017 she joined the ABM Team and with her personal and professional interest in Perioperative Patient Blood management her role as Clinical Director and Autotransfusionist for ABM was a natural fit. 

Tracy faces life’s challenges with resolve and is possibly pathologically optimistic.
