Off to Africa

Bon voyage to our Poole Africa Link (PAL) team who will be leaving for Lira in Uganda tomorrow, the first trip in over three years due to restrictions caused by the pandemic.

The team will be teaching at Lira University, Lira University Hospital and Lira Referral Hospital. They will also be taking out various items of kit for colleagues already out there. The two-week tour will be led by Dr Frankie Dormon (intensivist) who will be joined by Dr Luke Turley (GP), Dr Pasco Hearn (consultant microbiologist), Dr Ben Cambers (anaesthetist), Emily Seddon (midwife) and Rosie Farnworth (midwife). They will join Judy Mella (surgeon), who has been involved with PAL for several years and who is currently undertaking a breast care project in Lira.
