YEN.com.gh reports of how access to health care at Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) has become difficult as management of the hospital close down the out-patient department (OPD) after 150 doctors left the hospital
Access to health care at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) has been a terrible experience in recent times following the hospital's decision to elective and OPD cases.
What this means is that should you be a patient with a terrible pain in the stomach needing medical attention, you may be turned away at the OPD.
This is all because some 150 doctors who just finished their rotation at the hospital have decided to lay down their tools and say goodbye to the hospital
“It is precarious at KATH but I was told management is doing everything possible to realign some of the [working] clinics to ensure service providers will be available to see to essential services,” a reporter at Joy FM is recorded as saying.
YEN.com.gh is gathering that the entire hospital which takes care of the health needs of millions of patients in and around the Ashanti Region is on the brink of being closed down.
Meanwhile, spokesperson of the health ministry, Robert Cudjoe has revealed that the ministry is currently dealing with the situation.
“We have been in touch with the management of KATH since then. A meeting was held regarding how best to contain the situation so it won’t result in the death of patients," he stated.
