2018 Chinese representation from Ningxia Hospital visit to ESNEFT

A long standing relationship over several years between Prof Roger Motson and Mei Yang-Mille from Karl Storz, China has resulted in the ICENI Centre facilitating a meeting in October 2018 between representatives from East Suffolk and North Essex Foundation Trust (ESNEFT) and Ningxia Hospital in China. Its’ fruit is now a close relationship between the ICENI Centre, Trust and Ningxia Hospital with a signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between the latter two parties.  As a result, in 2019 it is planned to begin working on 3 major projects, in collaboration with Ningxia Hospital. The key elements of the plan are: Firstly, development of a fellowship programme, for training both Chinese and British surgeons, to share best practice. Secondly, a research collaboration initiative between the Trust and our partners in China, to exchange knowledge of the latest advancements in healthcare. Lastly, a closely related initiative to the collaboration, is placing a greater emphasis on education of both bodies in the field of pathology.

To move this ambitous project forward senior clinical staff from ESNEFT will travel to China in May.
