Jeffrey Steers

Clinical Perfusionist

As a clinical perfusionist at Evelina Children's Hospital, Jeffrey monitors the heart-lung machine which keeps the young patients alive while the surgeons are operating.

"Working within the limitations of the hospital in Sri Lanka sharpens you up" says Jeffrey who has made several trips since 2005.  Speaking of Mission 2012, he goes on to highlight, "Its good to transfer skills to the local technicians who gain an insight of the modern techniques we use at the Evelina."

"It's also great to give something back in charity work and, because all the volunteers from Evelina are really keen to go, I also love the camaraderie we generate as a small team."
