Dr Adrian Stanley has been training doctors to carry out life-saving endoscopic treatment using equipment donated by NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

The consultant gas-troenterologist at Glas-gow Royal Infirmary specialises in stopping upper gastrointestinal bleeding, a common cause of death in Malawi.

His teaching is done at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Blantyre.

Dr Stanley said: "This is a relatively simple but lifesaving treat-ment because there is a high mortality rate from bleeding related to this condition.

"Malawi has a relatively young population with a life expectancy of 49 years.

"So it's important that patients who are the breadwinners for their families get well and return to their farms and communities."
