Along with NHS Grampian, we were delighted to host Dr Bazezew, a Medical Resident from Felege Hiwot Referral Hospital in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia, during his visit to Aberdeen in October.

The aim of the visit was for Dr Bazezew to meet with colleagues at The Soapbox Collaborative, NHS Grampian and University of Aberdeen to further our on-going partnership to improve quality of care at Felege Hiwot Referral Hospital in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia. During his time here Dr Bazezew learnt much from his visits to a number of departments, the antenatal clinic, the obstetrics and gynaecology departments and maternity facilities both at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary and Peterhead.

The visit was a huge success with Dr Bazezew reflecting, “I shared an experience that I couldn’t get anywhere [else], which I will try to share with my hospital and the university, I’m sure there are things which can be implemented here [in Ethiopia] that can bring significant [improvements to] patient care.”
