Hi there, Just wondering whether anyone knows where Coast Province General hospital, near mombasa is, as I am thinking of going to work for a month. Also, any suitable accomodation for four people, not too expensive
Thanks a lot!

Thanks so much for your reply. Basically the hospital hasn't given us that much info bout what it's like, what to pack (v important!), where to say and things. If there was anyway we could get in contact with one of the doctors it would be so helpful. I don't spose you have an email address or anything, if they wouldnt mind us getting in contact?
Thanks very much for your time
Catherine

A litle more helpful bits of information you did not mention- At what level you would be working at the Hospital/what are you doing now/what are your goals- are you going to be working towards some college credits/Med. school attachment etc.
With these I could probably be able to give you a clear picture/may be also possible to intoduce you to local medics.
As I mentioned earlier I am in a way exposed to the medical system in Kenya though not residing there currently, Also know Mombasa very well- lived there for a long time.

Hi Rose
I was wondering if you are still living in Mombasa and if you would be able to help me get an email address for someone at Coast Provincial General hospital. I am a medical student and would like to volunteer there for 6 weeks in September. Thank you very much.

CPGH was a new hospital in 1954.
Here's the link to a book published in 1954 that refers to the hospital.
[books.google.com]

I also have found a book from 1955 that refered to it as a "new" hospital.

I hope this helps.

Hi there,

I don't know anything about the coastal hospitals, but I am an Australian living in Kenya so I can help you out in terms of what you need to bring, where to go and what to do etc. Let me know if I can help you out.

Regards,

- Marianne.
