- He has been treating people with his nursing training experience obtained in the 1970’s
- 74 year old Sarfo was however not able to provide certification for training obtained from nursing his nursing background
The police service, in collaboration with the Ghana Medical and Dental Council (GMDC), have arrested yet another fake doctor practicing without certificates.
74-year-old, Clinton Osei Kwame Sarfo was arrested yesterday, November 15, 2018 for operating a hospital at Kisseman with nursing training experience obtained from the 37 Military Hospital in the 1970s.
Sarfo claimed to have worked with 37 Military Hospital and the Tema Oil refinery (TOR) before his retirement more than 10 years ago.
Information available to Yen.com.gh, indicates that the suspect converted his three-bedroom into a consulting room where he attends to innocent patients.
Commenting on his arrest, the Registrar of the Medical and Dental Council, Dr Eli Kwasi Atikpui, said the council received information about the activities of an individual who was practicing as a medical doctor in his residence at Kisseman in Accra.
Further checks by the GMDC investigation team upon visiting his residence revealed that Sarfo uses an inner room as his dispensary treatment and injection room, while his living room was used as an out-patient department.
Sarfo however had no nurses, laboratory technicians or any other auxiliary staff assisting him to perpetuate the crime.
The suspect however admitted to treating people in his residence on humanitarian grounds, as that was his way of assisting people in his community.
He showed a certificate from the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) issued in 1972, but could not provide evidence to show he was in good standing with the NMC
Sarfo said he charged between GH¢5 and GH¢15 for his services and that he had plans of quitting at the end of this year.
