Private health facilities across the Volta region are bracing up to contain the excess number of patients who will troop to the facilities for medical care due to the ongoing strike by doctors in the government hospitals.
The strike declared by the Ghana Medical Association last week, is set to take a deep bite on patients who will turnout at the various government health facilities, as the doctors in region withdrawn out patients services.
This, situation is therefore expected to put pressure on both private and faith-based facilities, as patients throng these facilities for treatment.
Managers of such facilities have, however expressed their readiness to carter for the anticipated high turnouts in the coming days, when Volta Online toured some of the facilities within the Ho municipality.
Elorm Ocloo-Dzaba of Foresight Medical centreand Mawuena Letsa of Miracle Life Hospital, both told Volta Online in separate interviews that their outfits are prepared for any eventualities.
“We are ready for any event, whatever the case… our staff are on standby to attend to both NHIS and non NHIS clients,” they assured.
