June 30th – Hoima Hospital

Hoima Hospital, Uganda.

What a life-changing experience! Diversity brought together, striving for unity in the most inhospitable of places. Life cheats death and death greets life, dictating healthcare professionals’ cues for action. In the midst of this turmoil of emotions what am I – an apprentice in the art of practicing safely and effectively – I can offer reassurance through a smile, entertainment with bubble blowing, show urgency and assertiveness in life-compromising situations and improvised clinical skills where there is a significant lack of resources. I suppose that by now, I have undressed my armour of righteousness and embraced the Ugandan style: take it easy and get on with it, and whatever happens is for the best.
