Pharmacists are Critical to Health Care Delivery, says Ikpeazu

Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu says his administration is starting a new Hospital Management paradigm.

He said that this idea, will involve community participation and give all health care professionals, especially pharmacists, their proper place in the management system. 

In a press released by Onyebuchi Ememanka Press Secretary to the Governor Ikpeazu stated this on Wednesday 16 June, when he received in audience a delegation of the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria led by the National President Sam Ohuabunwa at the Governor's Lodge, Aba. 

"Under the new arrangement, Doctors and other hospital professionals will be recruited from the communities where the hospitals are located pointing out that the Nkporo hospital in Ohafia LGA newly built by the State government will be used as a case study in this new system."

He said that the government would make available monthly subvention to the new hospitals to subsidize child birth, malaria, high blood pressure treatment amongst others. 

He regretted that general hospitals in the State were not living up to expectations both in revenue generation and service delivery to the people. 

He attributed the rise in kidney diseases to drug abuse and made a case for the deployment of pharmaceutical services in Nigerian hospitals. 

Governor Ikpeazu congratulated Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa for the great job he has been doing for the country through the Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria and promised to leverage the services of Pharmacists to improve the health sector of the State. 

He assured the delegation that he would allocate of a piece of land for the society to build her secretariat as requested. 

Earlier, the National President, Pharmaceutical Society of Nigeria, Mazi Sam Ohuabunwa said the delegation came to felicitate and encourage the Governor on the successes his administration has recorded by his administration.
