Tom – Volunteering in Health promotion work

When i came to UK I was a trained doctor working in a hospital in Nigeria, however i struggled to get jobs in hospitals with no experience of working in the UK. I decided to do voluntary work with WOI in the health programmes department and used my medical skills to advice people on HIV prevention, the importance of testing and sexual health screening. With this experience I went back to college and upgraded my skills. I am now a lecturer at the University of East London.
