Graham arrived in Munda on Saturday afternoon but returned to Honiara on Sunday morning escorting a patient with bowel obstruction. Whilst at the National Referral Hospital he was able to discuss several other patients with medical staff in the paediatric and orthopaedic departments.
The situation at Helena Goldie Hospital is generally good with a reasonable level of nursing staff on the wards. Pharmacy and the medical laboratory service remains restricted by lack of supplies. The water supply to the hospital remains intermittent, partly due to key members of staff on annual leave.
Jenny continues at the hospital, transferring patients as necessary. Most people are finding it too hot here at present.
