Doctors rebuild as flood crisis swells

AS Queenslanders brace for further flooding across the state, doctors in the state's north have begun to rebuild what is left of their practices and homes.

Former ACRRM president and Theodore GP Dr Bruce Chater, whose surgery was destroyed in the floods, has begun operating a GP service from inside the local hospital grounds while a demountable clinic is constructed on hospital grounds.

"We live in extraordinary times - Queensland Health are taking extraordinary measures to get the demountable up and running as quickly as possible," Dr Chater said.
