Be A Volunteer In Hoima

Basingstoke Hoima Partnership For Health

Our Aim "To work with the people of Hoima Uganda to improve the delivery of healthcare"

Be A Volunteer In Homia

If you work for the HHFT Trust in a clinical or technical role or as a manager you may see this as a golden opportunity to broaden your skills and experience. The Trust may give you special paid leave so it may not all come out of your holiday time or study leave. However, special leave is not guaranteed.

We also want to hear from you if you work in General Practice or the Community because your skills are particularly needed too.

Some of our volunteers come from other NHS Trusts and the private sector.

Links with hospitals in the developing world are a win-win situation. Our Partnership not only helps to improve patient care in Hoima, but helps the NHS as well.

All those who have been there say it has contributed to their own professional development and skills which are transferrable to the NHS. They include leadership, communication, negotiation, innovation, improvisation, teaching skills and using scarce resourses to best effect. People discover qualities they did not know they had and the experience increases their confidence. We intend to make four visits a year lasting about two weeks. Each visit will have defined objectives for which we need people with particular knowledge and skills. This means we won’t necessarily be able to fit you into the very next visit. We can tell you what BHPH will pay for and what expenses we are not able to cover.
