African charity challenge for Solihull doctor and nurse

Dr Sue Harrower, a leading Solihull GP, and nurse Di Veal are setting out on a challenging African trek to raise money to save the sight of children suffering from a condition that is curable if detected early.

It will be the fourth fundraising trek for the adventurous GP, who is a member of Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group’s Governing Body and lead GP for Solis (the north Solihull practice consortium). Others have been along the Great Wall of China, the Peruvian Inca Trail and the foothills of the Himalayas.

“However, we know that most patients would prefer to die at home rather than in hospital. To enable this to happen, their care needs to be planned.
