The charity hopes to hold more such targeted missions to supplement the UK Fellowship Programme and the much larger cross-speciality annual missions.
The Surgeons, Anaesthetist and Orthodontist spent a week working at Facing the World’s partner hospitals in Hanoi: Hong Ngoc Hospital and Viet-Duc University Hospital. Together with a team of Vietnamese consultants the FTW team assessed 66 patients. Each patient was triaged and had treatment plans developed. Of these 66 patients, 15 patients were operated on across both sites.
