Series: Sector General
(From the publisher):
Sector General, the gigantic hospital wheeling in space, has a staff of thousands, comprising over sixty intelligent species. Every day it treats alien illneses of baffling complexity - no case is too big, too small, too hopeless or too weird.
Of all the hospital's very capable staff, Senior Physician Conway, the human doctor in charge of the Ambulance Ship Rhabwar, is thought to be the most promising.
So when he is replaced - without notice - by the birdlike alien Prilicla, Dr Conway is surprised, to say the least. But that is nothing compared to his shock when he is offered a promotion to a challenging new position.
It is his for taking, if he has the nerve...
