“As part of this assistance to the countries of West Africa, the United Kingdom has developed hospitals of 700 beds in Sierra Leone and in cooperation with the Government of Sierra Leone has appealed to the international community for help to deal with the Ebola virus in the country,” the ministry said.
In line with this appeal, Cyprus was asking that healthcare professionals – doctors, nurses, pharmacists and lab technicians to submit expressions of interest. Training will be provided by UK professionals.
