Day 1 of the first NCC in Uganda

Timings have been a bit of a challenge today: Devotions over ran, half our learners had to do a ward round before the teaching could start and Julia and Grace were called for clinical duties in the neonatal unit at lunch time as the paediatrician is away and a new 1kg baby was admitted. Jarlath and Kirstie did sterling work keeping the show on the road and we came in at 5.45pm with only one lecture left out and everyone still smiling.
