Death on a Dirt Road

Every rural GP knows the tragedy of road death in a small town. Local teenagers were taking turns to have ‘driving lessons’. Six were on the back of the ute when it skidded out of control and flipped.  When emergency service workers arrived they met a scene of devastation.  The town’s GPs, Drs Clem Gordon and Di Coote, were busy at their surgery when they got the call to the hospital.  After driving to the hospital, just a few minutes up the road, Dr Coote sent a message back

to her husband. “Tell Clem to get his butt up here.”
