With the encouragement of my grown up children I am starting this blog about my forthcoming trip to spend time in a rural hospital in South Africa. I will be there for just 3 months in a remote part of the Eastern Cape. As yet nothing much to say. One more rabies injection due, one more dose of cholera vaccine (perhaps overcautious I realise), malaria tablets and other useful medications bought (£100+) and an advanced trauma and life support course due before I go. That’s it I guess. It will be good leaving the UK as summer ends and arriving in SA in Spring although the Summer to midwinter transition coming back won’t be as much fun.
OK Rob, Jonny and Gill I have started….
