Member of Parliament for Nsawam-Adoagyiri, Francis Annor Dompreh has called on the Minister of Health Kwaku Agyemang Manu to address the challenges confronting the health sector with urgency.

Commenting on the recent happening where a 70-year-old man lost his life after seven hospitals refused to attend to him; Mr. Annor Dompreh expressed disgust that the hospitals failed to accommodate the patient just because of claims of having no beds.

The deceased’s family began their search for a hospital at 11:00 pm on Saturday, June 2, travelling for about 46 kilometres in total, across the seven hospitals, till he eventually died at around 3:30 am; a Citi FM publication on Tuesday, June 12 read.

The first hospital the late Anthony Opoku-Acheampong and his family went to before his untimely death was a private facility called C&J Medicare Hospital.

Mr. Opoku-Acheampong reportedly died in his car at the LEKMA Hospital at Teshie, after the hospital also turned him away over claims there were no beds.

Speaking on Peace FM’s 'Kokrokoo', Mr. Annor Dompreh wondered why the health workers failed to perform their duties but however believed the situation would have been different if the government had equipped the health facilities in the country.

To him, the health sector is gradually becoming an eyesore; behooving the sector Minister and the President of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo as well as the Ghana Health Services to find lasting solutions to the health problems.

“It’s a disgrace to the country . . . for once, let’s demonstrate a certain urgency in public services that when we give you a ministerial authority, let’s come and take responsibility,” he said.
