Tamale Hospital
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Nadowli East, Mr. Mathias Asoma Puozaa, has bemoaned the state of the Tamale Teaching Hospital and called for immediate measures by government to rehabilitate the health facility to befit its status.

He recommended that a permanent standby generator be provided for the hospital to overcome any eventuality and save lives.


Mr. Puozaa expressed the sentiments when he led a four-member Parliamentary Select Committee on Health that paid a familiarisation visit to the hospital.

It was one of the visits planed for the Northern and Brong Ahafo Regions to enable members of the committee to assess health care delivery at health facilities and to make recommendations to government for improvement.

The delegation inspected the National Health Insurance Secretariat within the hospital, the surgical and Septic Wards, maternity and the Children’s wards, as well as the X-ray department.

Mr. Puozaa said originally, the delegation was only to familiarise itself with the activities of the National Health Insurance Scheme in the two regions but decided to get first-hand information about the hospital.

He said if facilities at the hospital were improved, the Teaching Hospital would be able to take care of the health needs of the people in the Upper West, Upper East and Northern Regions and the Sahelian countries and parts of Brong Ahafo and Volta regions.

He noted, that would reduce the burden on the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital and the Komfo-Anokye Teaching Hospital.
