🇨🇦 In Canada, The Countess of Wessex visited both Toronto Western and Toronto General Hospital, which specialise in cardiology, the treatment of strokes, and transplants. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Her Royal Highness, who is Patron of both Hospitals, met patients recovering in the stroke and cardiology units. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The Countess also learnt about the Hospital’s use of technology and innovation, including robotic surgery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
