I had been working as a General Practitioner in Reefton, New Zealand, for only a few weeks, when, in May 1980, I was informed of a twenty-five-year reunion at my Medical School in London. My wife and I could not resist the invitation. Only about fifty of us turned up for the event, but I was staggered at the variety and range of stories told by the speakers.
I gave an account of my own experiences from my East African days as a GP in the 60s and early 70s, as well as our first few years in New Zealand, including our start in Reefton.
Over forty years later, I now look upon my time in Reefton as a highlight of my medical career; an unforgettable experience and a testing time.
Medical work has untold variety and excitement, a never ending profession.
