The Norwich GP was picked up from a lifeboat by a passing Norwegian cruiser and taken to King George Island in the South Shetlands before being transferred to Chile. 'We were incredibly lucky with the weather. We had been a lot more distant from other vessels. Everyone was well - we were just cold and wet,' Dr Robinson said.
Her medical expertise was not called on. 'As well as the ship's doctor, there were quite a few other doctors among us and we were a healthy lot. I just did what I was told,' she said.
