NDUK Update - November 2023

Updated: Nov 5, 2023


As the transition from autumn to winter unfolds, the vivid colours of fall give way to the bare branches and the chilly winds of the impending winter. Daylight Saving Time ends, and we set our clocks back by one hour, marking the return to standard time. The Halloween decorations that once adorned houses now lie dormant on the porch, awaiting their removal. Amidst this transformation, a subtle but unmistakable shift occurs in the atmosphere. The unmistakable scent of Christmas begins to permeate the air, carrying with it the promise of festive celebrations and the warmth of the holiday season.



From The Desk Of The NDUK President.

I was invited to represent NDUK at the 2023 MANSAG Annual Scientific Conference in London on the 27th and 28th of October, 2023. The Conference proved to be an impactful gathering anchoring its core theme on transforming health outcomes. NDUK was well represented by myself and Dr Efekodo, NDUK founder, who also made a riveting presentation about NDUK's journey.

I met with the MANSAG leadership represented by the President and the General Secretary. The purpose of this discussion was to agree on how we intend for both organisations to present a united front, especially in terms of representation and working collaboratively towards achieving a great goal for all Medical Professionals in the UK. I am glad to say, this was a success as we signed a MOA.



I was opportune to meet with the GMC Outreach coordinator who was curious about NDUK and was quite keen to explore ways to work with us. As a result, we will be working with MANSAG to have an online virtual event early next year with the GMC Representatives to provide some insights/tips on dealing with certain difficult scenarios at work. So watch the space for more information!

I also met with the MDCN Registrar and his representative. We had conversations about the barriers posed when Doctors access the MDCN portal and how this results in many challenges for Doctors in the diaspora. We had solution-oriented conversations and agreed to a session for NDUK members to ask questions relating to their challenges and learn new MDCN updates to improve interactions with the Doctors in the diaspora. The Registrar is also happy to create a special Whatsapp group with members where direct questions can be asked as they arise and members of the MDCN team can provide immediate response (Please note, the logistics about this is still in discussion).

Overall, NDUK was well represented and the leadership is very much committed to driving the association in a positive direction.
