"The biggest difference was the lack of provisions. Even though the hospital is partly funded, all patients still had to buy all medications and provisions for the doctors to treat them".
John Jenkins, University of Southampton 2023 – Medical
"I found the staff to be helpful if you introduced yourself, the more you gave the more you got back."
Hannah Bentley, King's College London 2023 – Nursing
