"Receiving a set of medical equipment to help support a hospital in the Gambia during the Covid-19
pandemic was phenomenal.
The medical physics team across NHS GG&C were exemplary in coordinating efforts. In order to make it possible for the equipment to be successfully delivered to The Gambia, it required the collaborative efforts of working partnerships that included logistics provided by “Project Gambia”, the medical physics team and the invaluable team at Scottish Global Health Citizenship.
I was liaising with them under one umbrella, what better way of having effective and efficient partnership, an indication of a great way of highlighting the extraordinary work done by NHS staff through volunteering.
There is no doubt that the hospital in The Gambia would make best use of the equipment in the delivery of good quality care to its community.
In collaboration with the hospitals, Ministry of Health of The Gambia, and a local charity called Class of 93 Kabafita, we have set up a task force to monitor and provide feedback on use of the equipment."
