UK PREMIERE: The volunteer medics continue to treat extraordinary cases of medical need. Featured patients include Maimouna - a 17 year old past patient whose facial tumour has now returned. Ignace - a teenage boy with a neurofibroma tumour which covers half his face & young twins with identical bowed legs. Maimouna's journey to the ship is dramatic as ship doctor Nerida, who operated on Maimouna 4 years ago with Surgeon Tertius, travels to Guinea, which has only recently been cleared of Ebola, to find Maimouna and bring her to the ship for critical surgery.
