Yesterday we received a plea of help through our website from a Doctor working in a busy hospital in Micronesia, to set up a Telemedical link for them. This hospital is part of the Caroline Islands – West-Southwest of Hawaii in the North Pacific. It has 34 beds, 5 Doctors and 17 Nurses. Those patients who are unable to pay for their Treatment sign an agreement with the hospital that either they or a relative will contribute a few hours of cleaning around the hospital, help with painting work or even provide food for the hospital kitchen.
Since setting up the link the hospital has already sent 5 cases overnight which have been allocated to Swinfen Specialists.
