This Link was established in 2004 between Northampton General Hospital and Nandom Hospital in Ghana. Nandom Hospital has 168 beds and is situated in the remote upper west region of Ghana. Our Team consists of Drs; Nurses; Dentists; teachers and other AHP. The link was established in 2004 and the team visit once every year. Our link is unique because we are providing help where it is most needed; not capital cities or in large teaching hospitals. The south of Ghana is well supported but the north is not. It takes 3 days on very poor roads to reach Nandom. We offer medical equipment; sponsor training of Nurses; and our surgical teams operate whenever possible. Nurse education is high priority. We have provided an ambulance and established a dental unit; sponsored 12 nurses and built a kitchen. Malnutrition and Malaria Kill a high % of the population. Next visit will be October 2009.
