Getting a little bored of snow, so I’ve decamped to warmer climes. Hello, Kathmandu! @BRINOS_UK_NP
… Emma is changing flights.
Having flown from London HR to Nepal’s capital Kathmandu, they need another plane over to Nepalgunj.
The @BRINOS_UK_NP hospital balcony, an ideal spot to catch up with some @ENT_AudsNews editing.
Emma is trying to report for Audiology News too.
…so why is she not sitting at the laptop?
..it didn’t take long for greenery to find its way in!
Setting up the operating Operating Theatre….
at the BECC in Nepalgunj ….
for the 62nd BRINOS ear camp .
Sorry Folks. These Tweets seem to have dried up…. Perhaps is because Emma is too busy performing her share of the ~100 operations per week.
…. Come back soon. Eventually there will be a more formal report on this page. Give the team time to recover though.
Great view of the sunset over Nepalgunj from the Hospital (BECC)

Patient information sheets
…once again, the Tweets have dried up.
It looks like the team are too busy again ……
Its worth noting that there are beds in the recovery ward, but the patients are quite happy, and very used to, sleeping on the floor on mats.
(OK, there are not many smiles about but they have all just had operations!)
... And Back to Emma’s Tweets @otolaryngolofox MARCH 12th
MIt’s a real privelege to volunteer as a BRINOS surgeon. In the past week the team have completed 124 operations (so far) on our patients here. More operating tomorrow!
This Page was a running commentary, based on information, mainly “Tweets” from the team in Nepal. Hence, much of it reads in the present tense.
