Worked at the ED here for a month as an RMO. Small ED with welcoming and skilled nursing staff. There’s a different FACEM each day from Lismore and they’re generally friendly and supportive. Only docs are the RMO and FACEM so it can be overrun at times but other times nothing to do! The town was still suffering a lot from the floods when I was there - a lot of GP issues came through as the GPs were overrun and not taking in more patients. Lots of social / housing issues resulting in health problems. There was trouble finding accommodation for me (ended up in a motel) but the admin staff are generally helpful and communicate well. The ward doctor was off with COVID when I was around so I was often asked to review ward patients which was fine but difficult when the ED was overrun.
