Commonwealth Fellowship Scheme
The team said their goodbyes to Thomas Tutamwebwa and Umar Candia today. They have been with the Meriden Family Programme for the last six weeks, the visit being facilitated by the Commonwealth Fellowship Scheme. They have completed a number of training programmes during their time here, with plans in place to improve services for families in their workplace when they get back home. Thomas works in Mbarara regional referral hospital and Umar in Arua regional referral hospital. The programme has now hosted 12 people from Uganda since 2012 and the majority of regional referral hospitals have someone in a senior position who has completed training through Meriden. Behavioural Family Therapy has become well established in the country and is a core part of the training of Psychiatric Clinical Officers across the country.
