OUH Consultant helps establish IR service in Uganda

After travelling to Uganda and learning that the country’s 40 million strong population had no access to interventional radiology services, Gregory Makris, Vascular and Interventional Radiology Fellow at OUH felt the scale of the difficulties besetting healthcare providers in such a resource limited environment, and the urgency of introducing these life-saving procedures to those in need.

Read his first-hand account of how he has been working with the Uganda-UK health alliance and other national and transnational organisations to establish an interventional radiology service in the East African nation.

Gregory is also chair of the Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology Society of Europe (CIRSE) European Trainee Forum, as well as chair of the British Society of Interventional Radiology (BSIR) trainee committee.
