We are currently aware of 28 British nationals who departed Sudan on the USNS Brunswick on 30 April 2023, alongside a number of other nationalities. As this was not a UK-run evacuation, we are in the process of reconciling the information we hold on eligible persons in Sudan, including NHS employees, who may have departed on the Brunswick.
