Hospital description

Students should be advised that this hospital is unable to accept elective students at this time. TEN will update this information when the hospital is again able to accept elective placements.

St Barnabas Health Centre is the most established of three hospitals administered by the Anglican Health Service, under the title of the Papua New Guinea Church Partnership (PNGCP). It is located at the Anglican Station in Dogura in the Milne Bay Province of Papua New Guinea. The hospital is run by an expatriate doctor, and though the doctor is rarely permanent, there has been a resident doctor in situ fairly consistently for the last decade. The doctors for this service are mainly recruited through Voluntary Service Overseas, a UK based organisation.

St Barnabas’s supports twelve other health sub centres and aid posts in the area, and serves the local community with a daily outpatients clinic and regular antenatal, family planning and child development clinics. In addition to these clinics, there is an x-ray facility, laboratory and minor operating theatre at the health centre and a new maternity ward is currently under construction. The hospital also has a dedicated generator, which provides electricity for lights in the evening and is also used turned on during the day when electrical equipment is required.

The hospital has its own dinghy for transport to Alotau by sea. Students are allocated for rural health experience from St Barnabas’ School of Nursing in Alotau.
