Our main achievements

 

Throughout the last three years, PalMed UK alongside PalMed and its other branches have sent a number of special medical delegations to the West Bank, Gaza Strip and refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon. These delegations have delivered a unique level of medical services to Palestinians inside and outside of Palestine. They have also held many specialised lectures at universities and hospitals for professionals and students in various medical fields.

The kidney transplant unit is considered one the most important projects by PalMed UK. Many stages of the project have been completed such as hosting a team of medics and nurses in the UK for a training programme in British hospitals which has enabled them to use the latest techniques in the kidney transplant field. 

In addition, PalMed UK was able to send 3 delegations to the Gaza Strip during the 2014 conflict and was able to launch fundraising campaign to treat the wounded victims of the conflict.

PalMed UK has connected the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh with Palestinian Health professionals in Lebanon by web streaming the college evening updates.
