Finley could soon have two new doctors with the arrival of Dr Priyantha Fernando and his wife Kumari.
The couple met while studying medicine at the University of Colombo in Sri Lanka, and Kumari has applied to have her qualifications recognised in Australia.
It would allow her to practise medicine alongside her husband at the Finley Medical Centre.
Priyantha has a special interest in general practice and chronic disease management.
The Fernandos have two children who are attending St Joseph’s in Finley, and Priyantha says he has ‘‘made a dream come true’’ by bringing his family to Australia.
Apart from professional reasons, he said he wanted to give his children a good education and to secure their future.
