Hi what is the best way to visit the hospital. Is it best to go on an organised and if so any suggestions or just box a taxi and turn up. Do you need to rebook if so? All ideas welcome. Many thanks

You must book an organized tour. I did this online. Take a taxi there but try to get him to come for you 2 hours later as taxis back are a problem as the hospital is in the middle of nowhere. Tours at 10 and 1400 hrs.
