Port Vila At Last

Finally the planes are flying from Lamap and am now back in Port Vila.

I enjoyed my time helping in Lamap, but there was a matter of professional sensitivity as to how many patients I saw - the nurses and Nurse Practitioner Sam are quite competent. So I needed to balance things as to how much did I take some workload from them and how much I waited until my advice was requested. You want to help, advise and empower them, rather than step on their toes, or give impression of taking over.

People were continually asking me for more solar lights. They had a great appreciation of the secondhand reading glasses and sunglasses that I brought and much gratitude for tooth removal in many people under local anaesthetic.
