A GP whose practice was flooded six months ago says she’s on the financial brink as she waits for her old practice to be rebuilt, after losing $1.5 million.  

Dr Nina Robertson works out of a temporary practice with four consulting rooms, compared with the 12 at her old practice in Lismore, following the NSW and Queensland floods in February and March this year.
