He holds the Diploma in Obstetrics from the Auckland University and from the
Royal Australian College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. As part of his
commitment to family practice, Dr Lee used to provides total obstetric services
(including actual confinement ) to women who had been under his care.
Unfortunately, the government of the day and hospital administration did not
value such commitment and Dr Lee has stopped attending deliveries from 1st July
1997. He has rescinded his admitting right to the obstetric unit and the birth
centre at the Canberra Hospital for political reasons. He is willing to start
attending deliveries again if the government or the hospital implement policies
which show that they value GP involvement in obstetrics.
Dr Lee is also the holder of the patent for the “Lee’s Speculum”, an instrument
which makes the taking of Pap Smear more comfortable for women. He has
published various articles on adolescent health on topics such as quit smoking,
post natal care, communication with teenagers, as well as an article on abnormal
Pap smears and genital tract infections in adolescent girls which was published in
the Medical Journal of Australia in 1987.
