Tweed hospitals kept busy over Christmas

Tweed and Murwillumbah Hospitals had a busy Christmas, with three babies born and a fair share of bumps and bruises.

A North Coast Area Health Services spokesman said both hospitals saw a wide range of ailments in their emergency departments.

"There was quite a lot of walking injured," he said.

He said while there was no distinct trend, Christmas would always bring with it a higher number of certain injuries.

"There definitely would have been a cohort of kids hurting themselves on their new skateboards and bikes," he said.

The spokesman attributed the bustling emergency departments to Tweed's tourism over Christmas.

"It's not surprising they were busy, because of our increased population at this time of year," he said.
