Oli says, “Since retirement we have done several stints at Kagando. I love the contact with patients and staff and have enjoyed trying to learn very basic Lukonjo – at least it gets everyone laughing on the ward rounds! I see my role through clinical work and teaching, not as an expert but more as support and encouragement for the local team.”

We have focused on supporting the junior medical staff, encouraging reflection, communication and continuing education. My sister and her family have lived in Kampala for many years, and seeing more of them is an added bonus.”

Rachel has taken on the responsibility for overseeing the Friends of Kagando involvement in the Palliative Care service set up by Dr Ann Goodman and has been responsible for editing the latest versions of the Friends of Kagando News/Prayer Letter.
