Beware

There are increasing numbers of Christian hospitals overseas which have no UK mission base or office. It is essential to find out as much as possible about them early in your planning.

3.8.2 secular agencies


(See Appendix 6 for contact details)

There are many posts available through secular agencies. These give a rich opportunity for you but there can be drawbacks – not least the possible lack of Christian support and fellowship. A comprehensive list of commercial recruitment agencies can be found at www.medicstravel.com

The Department of Health toolkit - International Humanitarian and Health Work (2003)

Contains details of many agencies as well as advice on training and career development. Useful information for doctors and nurses.
