UNTH management appeals to doctors to return to work

20 October 2015, 07:45

Enugu - The management of the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH), Enugu has appealed to its doctors on strike to return to work in the interest of patients dying daily in the hospital.

The Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Christopher Amah made the appeal on Monday while addressing newsmen.

He noted that the absence of the doctors from their duty posts had adversely affected patients who were in dire need of their services.

He said that his administration had consistently ensured transparency and accountability in all its dealings.

According to him, more than N120 million has been saved through direct execution of outsourced services.

He said the management was able to cut down cost through the review of contracts in the area of laundry, cleaning and security services in the hospital.

The medical director also said that the perennial problem of water scarcity at the permanent site of the hospital had been addressed, with the sinking of motorised boreholes.

Amah added that the management was upgrading the cardiograhic (heart) ward of the hospital to international standard.
