Here we are in the local pharmacy.
Whenever we talk with city friends about moving to the country the first issue they raise is medical facilities. A number of blog friends have also asked about this important topic.
Fortunately Kandos is not in the remote outback. We currently have three doctors and a pharmacy. We share a small hospital and ambulance with Rylstone just 7 kms away. There are three towns/cities with bigger hospitals and specialists within a 100 kms radius and of course transfer to the big smoke is organised when things are really complicated.
If the number of healthy older folk around us is anything to go by I reckon a quiet country life may be worth more than many pills.
