Chapter Summary

Towards the end of the first decade of the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium, in the comparative isolation of Khartoum, a high-stakes drama, over not just one but several incidents, played out under the relentless sun. During 1907, and the difficult year of 1908, Christopherson ploughed ahead with running the department and arranging for the first British nurse, Barts-trained Maria Pye Moore, to come to Khartoum from her prior position at the Anglo-American hospital in Cairo. In 1904 there was an announcement in The Sudan Gazette under the heading 'Khartoum Civil Hospital;' that a dispensary had also now been established in the Government Buildings near the Banks for the civil inhabitants of Khartoum who could not afford to pay for medical advice. By 1905 the Sudan annual Medical Report noted five Medical Inspectors, thirteen native doctors and three apothecaries.
