NEW GERIATRICIAN HELPS THE ELDERLY

After 27 years as the Far North Coast’s only Geriatrician, Dr Hugh Fairfull-Smith finally has a helper.

The Northern New South Wales Health District today welcomed Dr Alison Semmons to its tiny team of geriatric specialists.

The new recruit is already run off her feet.

“There is a very big elderly population here, my office actually will be in Ballina and we have a waiting list at the moment for people seeing geriatricians that’s stretching out to five to six months so I’m really looking forward to clear that.”
