From Success to Significance' by P. Ofori-Atta MB.ChB. FRCS


Motec share experiences with staff of Raigmore Hospital, Inverness, Scotland

Two senior members of  Motec spent two nights in the Highland District of Scotland (31st May to 2nd June). The team from. Motec Mr Ofori-Atta and Mr Caesar Owusu Mensah were welcomed at Inverness airport and hosted by Ms Jo Busby, an active member of Motec and a senior Scout leader who has led many missions to Ghana and successfully completed projects for the blind and the Hohoe Community of Ghana.

The Motec Team made two presentations to about 20 midwives, sonographers and senior management staff of the hospital. The theme 'Preparing for the Unknown' was most appropriate as Raigmore staff embark on a new project linking their hospital with Hohoe hospital in Ghana

The lively interactive session was intended to prepare the first batch of four staff members going to Ghana for the first time . They will be supported by Ms Busby and senior Scottish Scout leader Russel. The Motec team was impressed by the dedication of the hospital staff to the project. They had put in a lot of effort time, material and money. They were pleasant , keen to learn about delivering the project successfully. Motec enjoyed a marvellous reception by the staff and host Jo. This was topped up with a sumptuous dinner by the Ness River. 

The hospital team leaves for Ghana soon.

Mr Ofori-Atta and Caesar took the opportunity to see the beautiful landscape of Inverness (the town overlying the mouth of River Ness).  In spite of the team's effort to discover the Monster of Lochness (Lake  Ness), not even a trace of the Monster was located other than the artwork on cars and walls of the imaginary animal legend.

It has been planned for Mr Ofori-Atta to meet the hospital team at the end of their campaign in Accra on the final day.

Motec wishes the Raigmore team the best of everything.

Motec duo have returned to England for  the AGM planned for 3rd June
