Dr Tim Nicholson’s initial visit to Gizo was for 2 weeks in June / July 2014 with subsequent visits in July each year. He set up endoscopic urology at Gizo and performed the first TURP on 1st July 2014. On each visit he was accompanied by his own anaethetist Dr Tsung Chai & Dr Ian Carter and his daughter Jacqui, a surgical registrar. On the first two occasions he took his own scrub team. His philosophy is to teach and train basic urology to local nursing and medical staff, and encourage outreach visits to Gizo by the Honiara urologist.
