GPs caught in the bushfires (Part 1)
Welcome back to The Medical Republic podcast.
Our first episode for 2020 will be with you in a week or so, but we wanted to start the year by speaking with GPs who have been affected by the bushfires.
A fortnight ago, a fire jumped the river on the NSW border and headed for Walwa in north east Victoria.
The weather conditions have meant the fires are an ongoing threat.
Luckily there have only been minor injuries to humans but the emotional toll has been huge and lots of farm animals have perished.
Dr David Hunt, a semi-retired GP who occasionally fills in at the local clinic, joined us on the podcast this week.
