Links forged between Ilminster and China
7:00pm Friday 25th October 2013 in News
DOCTORS from Ilminster are forging links with health experts in China.
GPs at Summervale Surgery were thrilled to host a four-day visit from Chinese doctors as part of an exchange programme.
Drs Daisy Zhao Yi, Elaine Hu Zhuyin and David Wu Kun visited hospitals in the area before learning about primary care at Summervale Surgery.
The visit followed senior partner Dr Jill Wilson’s trip to China last July.
Practice manager Susan Harris said: “It is recognised that 90% of all patient contacts within the NHS happen within primary care and our visitors have been very keen to see all aspects of the work of a GP practice, spending time with all our staff.
“It has been a pleasure to learn about the Chinese culture and health system and we all feel we have learned much by sharing experiences and hope that this continues in the future.”
