Georgina Hill (“Georgia”) was one of 12 female medical students in her academic year; all but one predeceased her. After graduation and a spell in the Royal Army Medical Corps, she returned to Belfast to work briefly in infectious diseases and soon found her niche as a community medical officer. Her lengthy career often spanned several generations of local families, many of whom still remember fondly her genuine interest in and care for them above and beyond the call of duty.
Georgia’s greatest interests were reading (she read the BMJ until her death at 94 years), her caravan in Donegal, golf, and friends and family. Her Christian faith sustained her through adult life. She never married.
