Unite Medical raise £860 for Future Faces with Three Peaks Challenge

Members of the Unite Medical team have completed the Three Peaks Challenge in aid of Future Faces and have currently raised a total of £860!!

Climbing the highest mountains in England, Scotland and Wales in 24 hours. Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike, and Snowdon.

Worldwide 15,000 children are born every hour. This means that a child with a cleft lip and/or palate will be born across the world every two and a half minutes.

On average, one in every 700 children are born with this condition.

In India, for example, this amounts to an estimated 32,000 children every year.

The consequences are dramatic, ranging from social exclusion and stigmatisation to death from starvation because children with cleft lip and palate may not be able to eat or suck properly and very few in certain parts of the world gain access to the expert treatment they require. This is largely due to a lack of specially trained clinical staff and resources.

Future Faces aims to be a global leader in the training and support of cleft lip and palate healthcare professionals so that they can deliver the best outcomes thereby changing the future for otherwise disadvantaged children. By creating an integrated infrastructure, families and healthcare professionals are able to cooperatively deliver the best care, from the initial diagnosis through to post-surgery speech therapy and beyond.

Testimonials

I was not interested in any new opportunities until Unite Medical contacted me. Their comfortable and engaging communication style enabled me to consider another opportunity I'm glad to have taken up. I am now settled in a job where I'm very happy.

Dr P.M.

Quick and easy and comprehensive. Helpful and professional.

Dr G.S.

Consultant Rheumatologist

I have retired from the NHS and was seeking occasional locum work. Having not worked as a locum for 30 years, I initially found the world of agencies difficult to navigate but Unite Medical helped to simplify the whole process and the advisor assigned to me has always been very supportive and full of good advice.

Dr J. E.

All staff members have been very professional, helpful and friendly. Unite Medical is probably the best agency I have worked with. Small in size but big in performance.
