Angela qualified as a Doctor from Manchester University in 2013 and will be completing her GP training at the end of January 2020 in Bristol. During GP training, she gained her diploma in sexual and reproductive medicine. Prior to medical training she worked as an Auxiliary Nurse at the Great Western Hospital. Aside from work, she has volunteered in Sierra Leone, where she assisted in a clinic for a charity named Street Child, and has had a placement in Kisiizi Hospital, South West Uganda, where she gained experience of medicine in a rural settling. She has also volunteered for 4 months for the Ryder-Cheshire Foundation in India prior to her university training.
Miles has been a consultant paediatrician at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital since 2003, having trained in the UK and Australia. Prior to becoming a consultant he had worked and taught as a medical student in central Africa and the South Pacific, and gone on to spend some time working for a charity in the Caribbean. He has been fortunate to visit Sierra Leone four times since 2014, initially delivering neonatal and paediatric teaching with the Kambia Appeal, and more recently developing and delivering a paediatric refresher teaching programme for nurses, CMOs and doctors working in Kambia for the EBOVAC programme in 2019 and 2020.
