About this cause

About our cause

The Out to Africa project was initiated by Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Tom Browne in 2010. The aim of the project is to link staff and departments at Mid Essex Hospital, with their peers at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in Lusaka, Zambia to establish a long-term relationship between the two organisations that will bring mutual benefits through shared learning. An important aspect of the agreement is that it encompasses a variety of disciplines, including nursing, medicine, IT, estates and governance. To date, staff at MEHT have held Pain Management Courses, Laparoscopic Training Course and Burns and Physio training at UTH. The project has also provided a range of medical equipment and literature at the request of staff at UTH. Staff give their time to the project freely and it is important to the project that there is no impact on NHS funds. However it costs around £1000 to send a member of the project team out to Lusaka for a week and around £3000 to send a 24' container of equipment and medical supplies out there. These things will only happen if we have enough money to fund them so, if you feel this is a worthwhile cause, please give generously.
