    Dear Swansea Team!
    I am an ophthalmic theatre sister at Frimley Park Hospital in Surrey. I am going to Zambia as part of a team including three consultant ophthalmologists and an orthoptist. We are hoping to establish a productive and happy link with a hospital in Kitwe. Have you any advice to offer me? I am unsure of what to expect or of how my visit can be productive for them and us. Can I prepare in any way so as to get the most out of the visit?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Kind regards,
    Looking forward to your reply.
