Volunteering work

In addition to my normal clinical work and educational commitments, I have been involved in providing much needed medical help to patients in The Gambia, as a volunteer with the Urolink (part of British Association of Urological Surgeons). There, I worked at the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital in Banjul, Gambia, with a team of urologists from the UK. I spent one week there in 2007, 2008 and 2013; examining patients with urological problems in the outpatient department, and operating on patients with various urological problems. In addition, I provided several teaching sessions to the local trainee doctors and medical students.
