11 / 3 / 2016 11.30am - 11 / 3 / 2016 12.30pm
As part of Military March 2016, NHS Employers will be hosting a webinar with Lieutenant Colonel Chris Gibson. He designed and managed the processes that were required and implemented by the Army Medical Services so they could treat patients and healthcare workers following the outbreak of Ebola in Sierra Leone.
The innovative and ground-breaking procedures Lt Col Gibson designed were instrumental in the containment and treatment of Ebola in West Africa. The training allowed reservists to be able to master these complex infection prevention processes rapidly before being deployed to the heart of the outbreak in Sierra Leone for up to three months.
During the webinar 2nd Medical Brigade will be focusing on how NHS organisations can benefit from the training and opportunities offered by the Army Medical Services.
Maggie Durrant, senior nursing officer at the military Ebola treatment facility for healthcare workers, will share her experiences of being deployed from the NHS, what she learnt from her time in Sierra Leone and how her trust has benefited from her knowledge.
