The Naval Health Service and Health Practice, it seems much more professional than it was when I first came in and that's a reflection of health in general.

And I used to find that at sea I would have to rely on my clinical skills completely to diagnose and manage someone and I would have a limited inventory of medications to the point that when I returned from sea, I would often not order many investigations because I got so used to not relying on investigations, whereas these days those sorts of things are more readily available and there's digital X-rays and things like that which never existed back then, and portable ultrasounds and all sorts of things.
