GP's charity vies for peace prize

Dr Saddaf Alam chairs a charity that has been nominated for the Seoul Peace Prize.

The $200,000 prize is awarded by the South Korean government to recognise 'great contributions to the harmony of mankind'.

Stockport-based Doctors Worldwide provides care and training to doctors in areas such as India, Afghanistan and Sierra Leone. A dozen UK GPs are working abroad.

Dr Alam, a GP in Oldham, said: 'We were gobsmacked, happy and honoured to be nominated considering we are under four years old.'
