“Initially I struggled to settle in at the hospital but once I made this known the hospital team where so supportive. They encouraged me to participate in all aspects of emergency care and even took me out socially. I was made to feel part of the family and learnt so much from the doctors.The Oyster staff were so helpful and got the answer to all my questions, no matter how silly they were. Everything was done in a timely manner and the support from the staff in India was brilliant.The support provided before and during the programme was brilliant. No question went unanswered and the staff knew what was going on.It is so hard to be specific as I had such an amazing time. I loved becoming part of the team. The staff in India gave a great tour of Delhi and are so enthusiastic about their country/religion. I went to a temple in Amritsar which was absolutely crazy with tunnels and mirrored walls. Aksherdam temple in Delhi was amazing, especially when we went in the evening for the water show – that is something not to miss.Thank you for creating such an amazing 6 weeks. I have not felt so accepted by people for a long time and have made so many friendships that I was sad to have to leave.”
