Doc­tor’s farewell

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - Out & About -

For Dr Shahzad Ahmed, leav­ing De­niliquin is ‘‘bit­ter sweet’’.

He said good­bye to work col­leagues on Fri­day when about 40 peo­ple gath­ered at the De­niliquin Hos­pi­tal for a break­fast. He will go to Mel­bourne with his fam­ily. ‘‘I’m sad to leave all the peo­ple I have worked with here dur­ing my time in De­niliquin. They have been ab­so­lutely amaz­ing and it’s safe to say that with­out their ser­vice the town would col­lapse very eas­ily,’’ Dr Ahmed said.

‘‘But I’m very happy and look­ing for­ward to fur­ther­ing my ca­reer in Mel­bourne where I will be train­ing to spe­cialise in skin work.’’

Dr Ahmed thanked all staff at the hos­pi­tal and fel­low doc­tors at lo­cal med­i­cal clin­ics for their help and guid­ance.
