The regent of Dagbon, Kapankuya Na Yakubu Abdulai Andani, has appealed to the Ministry of Health and the Ghana Health Service to send more medical doctors to the Yendi Government Hospital.

He said the Yendi Government Hospital which is a referral Hospital within the Eastern Corridor and serves Saboba, Zabzugu, Tatale, Bimbilla, Gusheigu and Karaga districts, has only one Ghanaian Medical Doctor.

According to the Regent, whenever the Medical Doctor travels for other assignments out of the Municipality, all emergency cases are referred to the Tamale Teaching Hospital and that many do not survive the journey.

The Regent Kapankuya Na Yakubu Andani made the appeal when the Minister of Health, Mr. Alban Bagbin and his entourage, paid a courtesy call on him at his palace in Yendi as part of the Minister’s working visit to the Northern Region.

He said the Minister’s working visit will make the Health workers to sit up by performing their duties regularly.

Kapankuya Na Abdulai Andani commended the NDC Government for expanding the Tamale Teaching Hospital to enable it accommodate more patients from all parts of the region.

Mr. Bagbin stated that his working visit which started at Tamale, Gusheigu, Saboba and now in Yendi would afford him the space to share ideas with health workers in the region.

The Northern Regional Director of Health Services, Dr. Akwasi Twumasi, assured the Regent and his people that he would consider their appeal.

In another development, Mr. Bagbin has visited the Yendi Health Assistants Clinical Training School and interacted with the Staff and students of the school.

He expressed concern about how dormitories of the Health Assistant Clinical Training School was overcrowded and said if there is an outbreak of any disease, it would be disastrous.

The Minister who is also the Member of Parliament for Naduli West, also addressed a forum at the Yendi Municipal Community Centre.

He said the government had improved the National Health Insurance Scheme to help the poor.
