Clopidogrel useful with aspirin therapy

Dr Raj Chandran is being frustrated in his efforts to help the relief effort in tsunami-stricken Sri Lanka because he can't get a locum.

Dr Chandran, a GP in Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire, said he had been let down twice and being singlehanded in an isolated community made it difficult to find cover.

Chronic bureaucracy in Sri Lanka was also proving an obstacle for people looking to help, he added. 'The money can be raised, but the infrastructure has to be in place before people can go. I'm really frustrated.'

Dr Chandran is looking for Sinhalese- and Tamil-speaking GPs to contact him on 01623 557646.
