Medical and Dental Association of Nigeria (MDCAN), Ladoke Akintola University of Technology (LAUTECH) Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso chapter has announced the withdrawal of its services.
The association noted that they have suspended all their services in the hospital over poor services in the hospital
This announcement was made on Monday via a statement. The statement was signed by the duo of Chairman, Dr Ayobami Alabi and Secretary, Dr. Taiwo Alatishe.
The doctors in the statement made available to DAILY POST on Monday said that the decision was based on congress resolution and expiration of the ultimatum. The association noted that the decision was taken after the association critically observed the situation with no definite assurance that the issue would soon be resolved partly or wholly.
It then appealed to the public, traditional rulers, critical stakeholders and the Oyo State Government to come to the rescue of the teaching hospital.
“The congress hereby resolves by this press release to intimate the public of the notice of withdrawal of our services beginning from 08:00 a.m on Monday May 8, following expiration of our ultimatum.
“This is done to safeguard the hospital from total collapse and to reposition the hospital for better training, research, and services that the hospital is established to subserve.
“Delay and difficulty in payment of 2016 to 2017 salary arrears by the management and persistent failure of the management.
“The persistent inability of hospital management to employ doctors and other staff hinged on the excuse of no funds, has led to failure in expanding the scope of training and services”.
