Swansea team ed all the groups on return with formalised audit pro-formas First group of junior doctors who were generally team leaders all sent to Taiwan for further training Practically no further contact with any of the team members despite various attempt from us No replies from identified senior Hospital Doctors

19 Rescue plan: Swansea students to go out during the summer holidays to attempt to complete at least one of the projects

20 Pitfalls and lessons learned
Need for food during workshops! – and possibly per diems Even though in our eyes the project was not ambitious the reality has proven otherwise Working life is extremely busy for local doctors – small projects would be best
