Volunteer HCPs needed at Indian clinic

Healthcare professionals are being sought to join a team setting up a clinic in a poverty-stricken part of India in March, 2013. Volunteers can deliver life-saving treatment in a small village in the state of Punjab. UK-registered charity Slumdoctor Project organises the trip to the village of Phillaur every year, with 8,000 patients being seen last March by a 30-man team.

Dr. Vijay Bangar, Consultant Diabeteologist, one of the organisers of the camp and Director of Slumdoctor Project, says, “This represents the chance help some of the poorest people in the work and make life-changing interventions. Last year, thousands of people travelled on foot up to 100km to our medical camp to be seen. This ranged from children to the very elderly. Our remit was to see every person that came through our doors. No one was turned away..”
