We urgently need that trauma training

The shortcode (free toll) emergency care number installation is not a moment too soon as these photos of a serious bus accident at Kanona, near Chitambo Hospital, on 18th January, show. One person died and the injured were ferried to the hospital in the pouring rain.

This accident was reported the day after our Scottish Government Small Grant Assessment for our next funding application.  This application includes requested trauma and first repsonder training for hospital staff.  As the Head Physiotherapist said after the above accident:

"We urgently need that trauma training."
