This rural 100-bed hospital delivers about 2500 babies each year. The hospital has an active community health program and there are opportunities to be involved in research as well as clinical obstetrics and gynaecology. It is an integrated rural health and development program with extensive community work and there are strong links between the community antenatal clinics and the hospital.
We have a strong national team of senior and junior OG doctors but nobody with a postgraduate degree. The team still benefits a lot by continuous and intermittent support by expat OG consultants especially in the areas of quality improvement adjustment to the latest guidelines changes support and teaching especially in surgeries and ultrasound. With an expat consultant we can also keep up our postgraduate recognition for FCPS. Trainees working under national leadership are also welcome and can bring significant contributions to the team.
The post holder will have the ability to bridge the Western standard of care with the possibilities of the hospitals setting. They will be willing and able to facilitate support challenge and empower others rather than do the work themselves.
