Allan, Transfusion Specialist Lead for the Pathology Partnership

One moment from working with Yangon Hospital with Addenbrooke's Abroad is about this lovely lady Thida Moe. One of her jobs was pushing a trolley load of blood in packs for transfusing to people. It weighed 80kg and she had to get it up and down a dirt track full of holes. At one point she had to make the trolley do a wheelie to get it over a metal barrier which sat about 6 inches off the ground. It was quite spectacular. She actually thought she was the least qualified person and we wouldn’t want her in our photos. Once I noticed she had gone to hide behind the fridge when Mel was taking our team photo but I was like ‘what are you doing, you’ve got to be right here in the middle’. She was so delighted.
