FOUR doctors from a West Yorkshire hospital trust who performed dozens of life changing operations in Ghana have been recognised by the British Medical Association.

The volunteer medics from the Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust, which runs hospitals in Wakefield, Pontefract and Dewsbury, helped patients in Ghana who desperately needed help with untreated hernias.

Chris Macklin, Beverley Parker, Hannah Welbourn, and team leader Fawole Adeshina successfully treated 107 patients in Africa as part of the Operation Hernia project.
