Between the 17th and 23rd of February 2014 Mr Olarinde is joining a group of nurses, anaesthetists and surgeons on a surgical outreach to Tamale in Northern Ghana. The team will be offering free surgical procedures to patients most in need. During the trip, the team will also provide relevant surgical and nursing training to local staff. The trip is taken under the auspices of the UK Forum of the West African College of Surgeons and also supported by medical consumables supplied by Johnson & Johnson. Further ENT consumables have been donated by Sheffmed Ltd, Summit Medical Ltd (UK) and Arthrodax Healthcare International Ltd. Mr Olarinde is grateful for all their support.
