The Police Hospital in Accra has sent an SOS to the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) and other institutions to come to its aid as it has run out of beds for patients.

The facilities of the hospital are overstretched in the wake of the strike by public sector doctors, leading to patients being referred to the hospital for assistance.

The problem, according to the Public Relations Officer Corporal Faustina Nunekpeku of the Police Hospital, was particularly critical for pregnant women who must go through caesarean sessions and those who had undergone the operation already.

According to her, the intake of patients had increased since the beginning of the GMA strike, the hospital had not reached the “rush point yet”.

She said doctors and nurses on their annual leave had also been recalled to support the situation.
