Crazy healthcare conga

A Middlesex GP organised a 'crazy healthcare conga' in a supermarket to raise money for Unicef.

GPs, NHS managers, surgeons, opticians, pharmacists and the local mayor took part. Dr Shanker Vijay (pictured to right of Unicef bear), a GP at Hillview Surgery, ran a flu clinic with a twist before the conga, which saw 600 patients vaccinated in 15 minutes.

 

Afterwards, patients recorded video clips for the practice's YouTube channel.
