Mark O'Kane
Padhar Hospital, India

Clinical interest: Oncology

“I was also able to join the hospital outreach team on a visit to a local school. Here we checked every single pupil for health problems, particularly screening for hearing, visual or mobility problems. These outreach programmes are crucial for many local people as they are not able to attend clinics at the hospital. When abnormalities were found during the screening the hospital staff would organise with the school teachers for the pupil to be brought into the hospital for a full assessment as soon as possible.”
