Out to Africa

Out to Africa

Fund held under the Mid Essex Hospital Charitable Fund Umbrella


About the Project

The Out to Africa charitable project was initiated by Consultant Vascular Surgeon, Tom Browne and the overall aim is to link as many people and departments within Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust, with their peers at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in Lusaka, Zambia.

The programme is intended 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.

There has been many fund raising activities for the charity, including an Open Day at Broomfield Hospital in Chelmsford in August 2014, where staff and visitors enjoyed a day of side stalls, entertainments and visits behind the schenes, including the theatres, helideck and wards.
