A United Kingdom medical contingent from 16 Med Regt has opened a Level Two hospital facility in Bentiu, in support of the UN mission in South Sudan (UNMISS). While the facility will not treat local people in the area, due to limited resources and limited capacity, it will provide medical care to over 1,800 military and civilian UN staff working in a remote location.
