Operating microscope arrives safely

Here is Mr Mkandawire, clinical officer in ophthalmology, giving the thumbs up as he tests an operating microscope that has just arrived from England. The microscope was donated in July this year by a medical practice in Suffolk (see this post for more details) to the eye clinic at the David Gordon Memorial Hospital, at Livingstonia. The hospital is planning to develop eye care services further, with the possibility of providing cataract surgery in the next couple of years. This microscope is an essential tool in eye surgery.
