Speaking on Day:
With prior experience in several emergency centres in South Africa, Andrew now works as an Emergency Doctor at Okavango Air Rescue.
Currently, there are several resuscitation beds, a well-equipped procedure room as well as both a fixed wing and rotor-wing aircraft for which he is one of the critical care transport providers.
Andrew grew up in the city of Johannesburg, South Africa. Andrew enjoys the wild outdoors which has led him to Maun, Botswanan. His hobbies include hiking, fishing, any sport with a ball and endurance races.
The thrill of emergency medicine has always excited Andrew and the opportunity to combine this with his love of the outdoors is what inspired him to become involved in pre-hospital care in rural Botswana.
