    The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) note with sadness the death of Dr Geoffrey Dixon on the 19th March 2019. Dr Dixon arrived in Perth on 14th February 1971, invited by Prof Cecil Kidd to accept an appointment as the Director of Child and Family Psychiatry at the main Children's Hospital. He also accepted a Lectureship at the University of Western Australia, in the Psychiatry Department at it's establishment by Professor Cecil Kidd.

    For much of his career Dr Dixon taught child psychiatry to undergraduates and consulted at Princess Margaret Hospital. He was a quiet, steady man, sustained by his faith and his family.

    The WA Branch Committee, on behalf of all WA members, extend their deepest condolences to the family and friends of Dr Dixon.
