Dr Hugh Humphrys retires after 33 years

December 16th 2022 heralds the retirement of Moruya's Dr Hugh Humphrys. Hugh arrived in Moruya thirty three years ago from Adelaide having achieved his degree at Adelaide University, further adding to his studies in the UK in obstetrics and anaesthetics.

On arrival in Moruya Hugh put out his shingle at the Campbell Street medical practice where he provided the community with a GP obstetrics service and anaesthetics for visiting specialists and local GPs and the hospital based surgeon.

In addition to his commitment to the Emergency department Hugh cared for residents at IRT Moruya aged care facility.

Outside of his medical contributions Hugh is fondly remembered for his roles in hospital reviews and on hospital floats. His most recent appearance being in the revised Moruya Mardi Gras parade.

Hugh always promised to himself that he would retire when he “hit” the milestone of turning 70 and he has achieved that goal.

Hugh is looking forward to doing sailing, road trips, skiing ,bushwalking and generally pottering around his home.

Congratulations Hugh, from all of us. And thank you for your service .
