London based general medical doctor from the west of Ireland. I have been working with MSF in the European migrant crisis. Tragedy and trauma in contexts such as Idomeni, Lesbos, as well as search and rescue in the central Mediterranean provide the backdrop to my posts. I hoped to highlight the experiences of those people we assess and treat in the medical clinic. Opinions are entirely my own.
