Revamping health sector will reduce medical Tourism- Expert

Bukola Afeni
The Chief Surgeon Consultant, and Head of Neurosurgeon National Hospital Abuja, Dr Charles Ugwuanyi has reiterated the need to prevent medical tourism by improving health care services in the country.
He made the disclosure at the official campaign launch and unveiling of the manifesto for his campaign as NMA FCT chairman, which will come up in August.
Ugwuanyi called on the stakeholders in the health sector to revamp the system such that patients do not have to leave the shores of the country before they can access quality health care services.
In the same vein, he urged the Labour leadership to regularize the health sector by making the welfare of doctors of paramount importance such that all their outstanding  demands are met.
“Medical doctors are never duly accorded the respect that they deserve, and not properly renumerated. The medical profession is suffering and we want the government to address all outstanding issues with the medical union”. He added.
Speaking further, the aspirant added that when voted as the FCT  NMA Chairman, he will bring accountability and stability into the health care system in the Federal Capital Territory.
“I have built a lot of capacity in so many dimensions, in the medical field, over a service period of nearly 30 years, having served in diverse Medical Association.
With the  vast experience and exposure that I have acquired, I believe I am very conversant with the issues and problems in medical practices in Nigeria as a whole.” He noted.
