Dr Betty sees last patient

MURWILLUMBAH'S remarkable Dr Betty Marks has finally hung up her stethoscope.

It was the 90-year-old GP's emotional last day seeing patients on Friday after a 66-year career in medicine.

But there will be no time for rest just yet for Dr Marks.

There's a round of farewell engagements planned for her by friends and patients.

Dr Marks was forced to stop working at the Murwillumbah Hospital when she was 65 years old.

But for the past 25 years she has been working five-days a week at the Queen Street Medical Centre and played an important role in countless local families' lives.

The Tweed Daily News will celebrate Dr Marks' career in a future edition.
