Q Sorry this isn't really a question, but I am at Port Vila hospital, just arrived. I had a similar problem with getting in contact with the hospital before I arrived. Apparently this is because the original administrator (Asha Sine) left without handing anything over. Therefore the new person to contact is Prisca Michel, who unfortunately doesn't always reply to emails (email@example.com). Or I tried emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and they passed my email on. Otherwise call and ask to be put through to Prisca, they do eventually pick up! Although Prisca may not be there, especially at lunch time. Otherwise if you already have things organised can probably just pitch up and should be fine. I am happy to be contacted by other students if they wish.

Q I've recently contacted the hospital for information on the application process, and they've informed me that applications are only accepted within 3 months of the elective period. Is there any other way to apply earlier? I need to have it organised much more in advance to adhere to university policy.
Q: Any new address for this hospital? Both the email and email@example.com return undeliverable.
