Retirement of Dr Delma Mullins

After 39 years Dr Mullins has finally decided to hang up her stethoscope.


Dr Mullins has been a stalwart at Brook Medical Centre and the Muswellbrook Hospital.  She has been a true Country practitioner in every sense of the word. Looking after the whole family – from ante natal , post natal, paediatrics, immunisations  adolescents, family planning, emergency medicine and mental health – Dr Mullins covered it all!


During her time here in Muswellbrook she has raised 6 beautiful daughters with her husband, Dr Mark Rikard-Bell, and is now a very proud grandmother of 9.


There are few jobs as stressful and requiring as much hard work as a doctor. You have earned a long and restful retirement  Dr Mullins, and we wish you every happiness.  Our community has been very fortunate to have been the recipients of your knowledge, skills, compassion and kindness.


After 39 years of caring for others,  it’s time to look after yourself!


Happy Retirement
