The Anambra State branch of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has described the state of general hospitals in the state as unfit and not conducive for patients due to what it termed bushy environments, lack of electricity at nights, lack of doctors, shortage of medical personnel and a host of other issues.

The association equally decried what it saw as poor hazard allowance for resident doctors at Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital, the absence of insurance policies for doctors as well as the full implementation of the Consolidated Salary Scale for doctors.

The association also observed that unresolved issues of welfare and other packages have culminated into mass exodus of doctors from Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University Teaching Hospital.

Chairman NMA, Anam¬bra State branch Dr. Jide Onyekwelu, disclosed this information at Nkpor, Idemili North Local Government Area of the state during in exclusive interview on the performance of the health sector.  (Daily Independent)
