PATIENTS at the Billy Riordan clinic in Malawi have this month benefited thanks to the efforts of Townhead Practice’s staff.

The clinic in Cape Maclear, Malawi, provides primary care medical services to the local population in a similar way to the services provided at the Links Health Centre. Money to buy a diagnostic set was raised this summer from a sponsored walk involving the practice’s staff, family and friends.

The diagnostic set, which will be used by doctors and nurses at the clinic, is fully rechargeable and ideal for use in Malawi as batteries are not always available.
