Murray Shire councillors have raised concerns over a shortage of doctors in Mathoura.

Deniliquin doctor Robert Campbell used to visit the town weekly, but increased demands on his time as a surgeon has meant he reduced his visits to fortnightly.

Mathoura-based councillor Betty Murphy told a shire meeting last week the town needed a weekly service.

She said the lack of a regular GP service had forced residents to leave the town.

Councillors agreed Mathoura needed a greater service to satisfy residents.

They agreed to raise the issue with doctors in Deniliquin and Echuca-Moama.
