2016 : Raising Malawi - saving lives and equipment

NHSGGC joins forces with the charitable organisation, Raising Malawi, to deliver desperately needed medical equipment to a new paediatric surgery and intensive care unit in Malawi.

From wellies to an ECG machine much needed equipment is being donated to the new health facility in the southern region of Malawi. A 50 bedded children’s extension to the Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital in the country’s commercial district of Blantyre  is desperately in need of healthcare equipment and basic furniture to treat the many children who visit the facility for surgery and critical care.

Following the closure of the children’s hospital at Yorkhill, the old Southern General and the old Victoria and Western Infirmaries, NHSGGC has a surplus of equipment which will ship to Malawi, avoiding waste.
