People who don’t have asthma ‘using inhalers for the first time’, western Sydney GP tells

Sydney was blanketed in thick smoke the morning I drove to the city’s south west to meet GP Tim Senior.

Passing through the CBD, it was hard to make out buildings 200 metres ahead, and by midday, my aircon had conked it in the 35 degree heat.

Even back in early December, smoke from the nearby bushfires had begun to take a toll.

“Today is particularly bad,” said Dr Senior, who works at the Tharawal Aboriginal Corporation medical clinic, just outside Campbelltown.

He told me he first started to notice the smoke in mid-November, when the fires began.

“The smoke has just hung around and there’s not been any relief,” he said.
