UK-Med is a frontline medical aid charity. Born of the NHS, we’ve been working for over 30 years towards a world where everyone has the healthcare they need when crises or disasters hit.

Our ideal candidates will be fully licensed and experienced General Surgeons, with a substantial background in delivering medical care to patients with diverse medical conditions.
