I have often praised our local health services here. Our GP is currently on sabbatical in Liberia, helping out and being challenged by a whole new culture. Her blog gives a flavour of the work and the needs of the place. Dr Adrienne tells early on, of a baby dying shortly after birth because of a lack of basic drugs and oxygen.
More than anything it makes me aware of the blessings we have in Scotland. As I have said before, there may be a lot of things that need to be improved, but basically we have the workings of a good and just society. And it is always good to hear of people trying to make things better elsewhere in the world.
