Mercy mission

GP registrar Dr Imran Khan is returning to a remote part of Pakistan where he treated 5,700 earthquake victims on a previous visit after being helicoptered in by the army. The village of Rasheng, near the Kashmir border, is a far cry from his Suffolk practice in Woolpit, with no sanitation and people living in tents. Dr Khan will take medical supplies to the village. 'Last time, I was the only doctor in the area, so people from neighbouring villages would walk for five or six hours for treatment,' he said.
