Dr Ayodyha Wataliyadda, a paediatric doctor from Sri Lanka, is furthering her medical career with a two-year placement in Yorkshire, England. She has been supported by the Foreign Placement Coordination Centre, a scheme backed by the Sri Lankan government. As part of the scheme, she has signed a bond that for every year spent in the UK, she will work for at least four years back in her home country.
