Interview With a Surgeon – ‘Hidden Hero of the NHS’

On National Doctor's day we interviewed a doctor - Dr.Makani Hemadri, who has seen the best of both worlds. He sees the current problems facing the doctor community at large objectively. Many doctors from India take care of healthcare systems in the world. Apparently almost 25,000 doctors of Indian orgin serve the National Health Service of England. In the US, Middle-East and in countries as distant and remote as Fiji, Belize and Zambia one can find Indian doctors doing a great service to these communities. Many have left the country for better prospects and like the computer technocrats command a good position in the society and are highly respected for their skills and care. The national doctor's day is a celebration for all doctors from India - be they in India or abroad.
