Almas Rehman
Korle-Bu Hospital, Accra, Ghana

Clinical interest: General medicine

“I was just amazed at how well the medical staff coped and did such a fine job of treating their patients. The junior doctors take huge responsibility for the care of their patients and the working hours are quite different to the UK. The doctors have to see their patients every day, including the weekend. Their hours are from 8pm-5pm and they also return in the evening to check on their patients. They have on-call duties every 4 days for 24 hours and they work the day after their on-call. It is a pretty intensive schedule.”
