“This is a pilot scheme towards the bigger one which will be where we will deal with serious issues; anaemia,lump in the breast and I am doing that in conjunction with Association of Resident Doctors at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital; we are working assiduously towards it to make sure that we provide health care. headtopics.com
“Here, we are trying to treat people with high BP, sight problem and all those little issues we try to sort out, some glasses prescribed which are not available here we will also pay for, so that they can buy outside. It is in continuation of our health scheme.”
Akinlade, in the statement urged well-meaning Nigerians not to leave health care provision to the government“Inasmuch as much it is expected from government, the well-meaning individuals should support government too. Here today the elderlies are being attended to, they see the nurse to check their blood pressure sometimes it is always high.
“Most of the them can’t even afford to go to the hospital for proper check-up, many are even complaining that when they come they would have to queue,” she said.Copyright PUNCH.All rights reserved.
