Sounds like you are going to have a great weekend Adi, how much is it costing you?

LOL I have had to build up to this point, normally it is only open to Paramedics, Nurses and Doctors who have professional medical qualification so I am lucky to get on it.

I have been running a back street clinic for some years now ;) lol







For family and friends!

Someone has dropped out so I have paid enough to cover the admin cost and certification cost  ;)

Well done Adi, you deserve it :)

It would be really interesting to hear how you get on this weekend, I am sure this type of medicine will be of great interest to many of the forum members. Have a good one ;)

I hope to get some photos if it is aloud and I get time but I will write about it on my return.

This weekend I am doing the ECP medic course.  This course is recognised and signed off by the Liverpool School for Tropical Medicine.


Did you get your certificate Adi? If you have I've got this little problem I'd like you to take a look at - not really sure where I picked it up from but 'Dettol' didn't clear it up.  ;)
