The 41st team of the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies, Kuru, today, paid a working visit to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), as part of the effort of the Federal Government to further create guided policies to enhance quality healthcare delivery in Nigeria.

The Acting Director of Studies, NIPSS, Dr. Nasirdeen Usman, pointed out that funds have to be provided for the healthcare system to blossom and this is a concern for the Presidency because it’s evident that other means of funding have to be sourced to achieve qualitative healthcare. To this end, “we need to go out to see things for ourselves.”

On how the system works, he says “we visit key agencies such as NHIS, Primary Healthcare Delivery Agencies, Teaching Hospitals among others. Upon completion of our findings, we collate our report, present it to the Federal and the State Government involved, that way, informed polices and decisions are made to improve the health sector in the country.

The Chief Medical Director of LASUTH, Prof. Adetokunbo O. Fabamwo in his address, highlighted the cotton edge practices in the hospital. Some of which include the Critical Care Unit; Assisted Reproductive Techniques at the Institute of Family Medicine; the Eye Bank among others. He also highlighted the areas where the hospital hopes to have unprecedented growth in the nearest future, some of which include having a well- established minimally evasive surgical unit, radiotherapy machine for cancer care and a self-sustaining institute for kidney care.

During the tour and interactive session at the Institute of Maternal and Child Health Care Center ‘AyInke House’, the team members had the opportunity to ask questions which were aptly answered by the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, the Director Clinical Services and Training, Dr. Ibrahim Mustafa and HOD Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Dr. Adeniyi Adewunmi.

During the inspection, the Specialist Bio-Medical Consultant to the Ayinke House project, Dr. Sylvester Odigie, who took the entourage round the facility, highlighted that structural maintenance would not pose any challenge as “it is supported by the backbone received from the laboratory of the manufacturers... Government has a policy in place to sustain and manage the equipment,” he assured.The CMD was later presented with a plaque which consist the roll call of participants of the Senior Executive Course 41, 2019 Study Group 5.
