We’re getting into our routine now, arriving at the hospital at 8:30 and going to our various departments in the morning. One highlight of the day was meeting again Dr Isaac Cleto the Minister of Health for Western Bahr El Ghazal . We were pleased to hear that he had followed our previous advice of building the new maternity unit on the Wau hospital site. Already there is a new purpose built antenatal clinic.
Hilary and Bruce met with the chief health trade unit representative and discussed the universal problems of pay and conditions. Prem, Hilary and Bruce had a warm welcome at the Episcopal church where they went to inspect the potential future site of permanent accommodation for the Link.
As usual we went to the two nursing colleges to give further teaching in the afternoon. The midwifery students will never forget the McRoberts manoeuvre now, as demonstrated by a strange English woman (Hilary) with legs akimbo.
Unfortunately Bruce only managed to fix a plug socket today but we hope our Mr Fix it will have a more productive time again tomorrow.
