Lagos to commence kidney transplants

11 November 2013, 11:33

Lagos - A member of the Lagos Assembly, Suru Avoseh, has said that the state government would soon commence comprehensive kidney treatment in one of the state hospitals.

Avoseh, who is the Chairman, House Committee on Health Services, said such facility would allow the citizens to have quick access to kidney treatment and transplant.

Avoseh, who represents Badagry 1,  told News Agency of Nigeria that the citizens would enjoy the resources here in Nigeria instead of travelling to India, Britain, or the US for kidney problems or transplants.

"Lagos State is up to the task. If you go to Gbagada General Hospital, you will see the just commissioned Trauma and Burns Centre. I believe it is the first of its kind in the whole federation.

"You will also see the Cardiac and Renal Centre, which is about to be commissioned and by the time it is handed over it will be one of the best," he said.

The lawmaker also advised the residents to take advantage of the ongoing modelling of Primary Healthcare Centres (PHCs) in the state.

He urged the residents to patronise available PHCs in their various communities instead of proceeding to the General Hospitals and Teaching Hospital for ailments that could be properly handled at the PHC level.
