During his visit to the Institute of Development Management (IDM) this week, the Chancellor of the University of Bolton who is also The Earl of St Andrews made a brief courtesy visit to Princess Marina Hospital where he met the Acting Superintendent, Dr Goepamang.

The Earl was on a week-long visit to Lesotho and Botswana, where he attended the 2019 IDM graduation ceremony and conferred degrees and awarded postgraduate diplomas to over 45 graduates.
