Day 4 – Making inroads

The first day of the month signalled the beginning of the rainy season in Tanzania. The changing weather however did nothing to deter our enthusiasm. By the time the team reunited at lunch, they had nothing to report but success.

For the surgical team, preparation was well underway for the 10th national Laparoscopic course to be held at KCMC. Dr Fiona Rutherford our core surgical trainee would be giving a presentation to the medical students on the process of Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy, while Mr Liam Horgan would be demonstrating how to complete the surgery.

Sam’s project of digitalising medical records was progressing swiftly and for Julie her audit on bed blocking expanded when she was invited onto surgical ward two.
