“In 70-odd years, the clinic had never seen water inside … The flood reached 1.8m inside the building — just underneath our air conditioning.” 

It was March 2022 when Dr Michele Blandford and three other GPs from the Keen Street Clinic in Lismore sat down for their first proper meeting after their practice was flooded.
