The Logie Legacy

NHS Borders, Scotland, is linked to St Francis’ Hospital in the Eastern Province of Zambia, near the town of Katete. As it has an excellent local reputation St Francis' hospital looks after a much bigger population than other hospitals of similar size, and also takes patients from across the border in Mozambique and Malawi.

The Logie Legacy is a Scottish Charity set up to support the formal twinning link between St Francis Hospital and NHS Borders. We have been involved with projects in Maternity, Paediatrics, Physiotherapy, HIV, Sexual Health, Pharmacy, Public Health, Opthalmology, Radiology and TB control, and are just completing a large project to improve the water supply. There are also links with the attached Nursing and Midwifery School, and with a ‘Garden Project’ aiming at increasing sustainability.
