Today the clinic's previous record of total consultations in a day (just over 70) was shattered, as the total amount of people seen today reached 100!
When the nurses came to clinic around 9am there were already about 50 people waiting outside-
and more on the way!
Amazingly enough, things went smooth for everyone and they were finished by 2:30 in the afternoon!
This picture was taken around 1pm- usually there's nobody left by now, but there was still good 30 people sitting around!

She takes their temperatures and blood pressure before they go into the consultation rooms.
Impatient patients (that sounds interesting, doesn't it?) waiting outside for their turns!

Now he's all healed up and ready to go!
