Technicians at Connaught

We would like to introduce Ibrahim, one of Connaught Hospital’s highly skilled technicians behind the functioning of the hospital’s new oxygen factory.

Since the rejuvenation of the oxygen factory he says, “I feel more secure in my job and that my team are needed and will continue to be supporting the hospital in the future.”

Ibrahim first started working at Connaught Hospital 5 years ago. Since then he has become a specialist in handling medical equipment like ECGs, monitors, anaesthetic machines and, of course, oxygen concentrators. Ibrahim enjoys his job and is always looking to improve his skills. He and all the technicians are hoping that in the future they will continue their training so they can maintain the full range of specialised medical equipment needed at Connaught.

Ibrahim is very positive about Sierra Leone’s future. “So many sad things have happened but we are strong people. Ebola exposed weaknesses in health care so we are improving from now.”
