Delegation from the Ministry of Health in the Republic of Kazakhstan Visits Imperial College London

The Department of Primary Care and Public Health at Imperial College London hosted visit today from a senior delegation from the Ministry of Health in the Republic of Kazakhstan. The aim of the visit was to brief the delegation about primary health care in the UK, including the education of medical students and the training of primary care physicians (general practitioners). We had a stimulating discussion about whether some aspects of primary care in the UK could be used in Kazakhstan. Among the speakers from the department wee Professor Azeem Majeed, Dr Sonia Kumar, Dr Sami Hasan, Dr Graham Easton and Professor Salman Rawaf. The delegation from Kazakhstan was accompanied by Professor Rory Shaw, the Medical Director of UK Trade and Investment.
