Tassie GP retires 'unexpectedly' aged 92

'It has been a privilege working here,' says Dr Ralph Peters, of over 50 years with his community

Tasmania’s oldest working GP, Dr Ralph Peters, has retired aged 92, a decision brought on by an "unexpected" health problem.

His departure comes hot on the heels of the retirement of fellow long-serving New Norfolk GP Dr Micheil Sweet, who gave up working earlier this month, aged 89.
