Patients at Hemodialysis Centre Bamenda Get Emmergency Response



Patients of the Bamenda Regional Hospital recieving medical attention at the Hemodialysis centre have expressed satisfaction for having recieved eight new dialysis machines, eight beds, a consignment of concentrated acids and 800 containers of salime water of 10 litre capacity each.



These equipments arrived the Bamenda Regional Hospital on Wednesday 6th January 2021 being a prompt response of the Minister of Public Health, Dr Manaouda Malachie on instructions of the Head of State, President Paul Biya.



Dr Kingsley Che Soh, Northwest Regional Delegate of Public Health and Dr. Denis Nsame, Director of the Regional Hospital Bamenda recieved the equipment from Yaoundé, with support from other staff of the Dialysis centre, a relieve pill to over 55 patients registered with the hospital as revealed by the North West Delegate of public health.




The Emmergency Response comes few hours after patients of the Hemodialysis centre had protested over the words of the Northwest Regional Delegate of Public Health, Dr Kingsley Che Nsoh who told them to hold for the Medical team to sort solutions to their problems.





The newly acquired equipment is made available as a result of the malfunctioning of some of the machines operating at the centre. Receiving the new consignment, the Regional Delegate of Public Health for the North-West Region, Dr Kingsley Che Soh, made a clarion call to patients who left the centre to receive dialysis elsewhere to come back.




"Am calling on this who went out of the region to come back, the installation of the equipment has been done after reception, they should return and continue their sessions at thesame rate".

"Two days a week and four hours per session, that is what is expected of the Dialysis patients. This was greatly affected due to the breakdown in machines."

The patients have expressed optimism, following the arrival of these new equipment. 

"I want to thank the Director for intervening. These equipment will go a long way to assist us get our regular dialysis. We also want to thank the Minister of Public health for his prompt response".
