MEDICAL OUTREACH

Owing to the fact that Reconstructive Surgery services are only available in 2 out of the 10 regions of Ghana (Greater Accra and Ashanti).

The National Reconstructive Plastic Surgery and Burns Centre regularly undertakes surgical outreach to the deprived regions to bring much needed surgical expertise to the doorstep of the Ghanaian population.

 This is normally undertaken in collaboration with District/Regional Hospitals, Regional/Local Government authorities and philanthropic, individuals/organisation with the aim of providing a free or at least highly subsidised service.  Over the last 3 years work has been done in Dzodze, Tamale, Nadowli, Bole and Jirapa, Techiman, Ho-(April, 2016).

Turnout has always been overwhelming. In Ho this year, a total 153 surgical cases were done by the surgical outreach team.
