Perm Sec Calls For Medical Referral Mechanism

The Permanent Secretary in the Osun State Ministry of Health, Mr Temitope Oladele, said on Monday there was a need to set up a medical referral mechanism in the country.

Oladeke told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Osogbo that the mechanism would help to assess the quality of healthcare the citizens got abroad.

He described the mechanism as a two-way system in which patients would be examined at the point of departure and after the completion of the treatment.

“In order to assess and ensure quality healthcare delivery for Nigerians abroad, there is an urgent need for medical immigration, which will serve as a referral mechanism.

“The control body will be saddled with the responsibility of monitoring the quality of health services available to Nigerians in referral hospitals,” he said.

The permanent secretary, however, called on the present administration to increase the level of funding in the health sector to minimise avoidable death in the country.

He said that Nigeria had the requisite number of qualified medical professionals to carry out any major treatment if the necessary infrastructure and equipment were available.
