It is with great regret and sadness that we learnt of the unexpected passing of Dr Peter Hicks, Clinical Leader of the Wellington Intensive Care Unit earlier this week.

At the time of his death, he was enjoying a long-anticipated expedition, climbing Mount Cook, New Zealand’s highest peak, with his partner Nikki. We take some small solace from knowing that he was engaged in something he loved so much. Peter was a former President of ANZICS (2007-2009) and has been a long serving member in a number of key roles since 2004. Peter was integral to ANZICS CORE for a number of years as Director of Critical Care Resources Registry and more recently as the Chair of the CORE committee. He was a wonderful Clinician, Teacher, Mentor, Colleague and friend to so many in the intensive care community. We will miss him greatly.

We are truly saddened by this news. Our deepest sympathies and condolences to Peter's family, friends and colleagues across New Zealand and Australia.
