Health the Gambia Support

As part of the pathology project, a decommissioned tissue processor has been donated from the Swansea NHS Trust to the pathology department at the Royal Victoria Teaching Hospital.

Prior to this, all tissue specimens for analysis in the Gambia were being processed by hand – a laborious and time-consuming process.  The tissue processor will greatly increase the number of samples that can be prepared and also free-up valuable staff time for other tasks.

We are very grateful to the charity Health The Gambia for funding the shipment of the processor.
