Korle Bu Teaching Hospital has now suspended operations at three surgical clinics, which are expected to be closed until March.

Health Minister, Alex Segbefia toured Korle Bu with the hospital chief executive Dr. Gilbert Buckle on Monday morning, 8 February.

Dr Buckle expected the clinics would reopen in October once they have the basic equipment.

Monitors, specialised needles, wiring and consumables which the hospital needs have been ordered, he said.

Pulse.com.gh visited the hospital which released a statement last week staying the three clinics under the Department of Surgery to be affected are Urology Clinic, General Surgery Clinic and Neurosurgery Clinic.

It said the closure would allow for work to be completed in some of the theaters and recovery wards.

The hospital said the closed clinics will be rehabilitated and re-equipped to improve the quality of care.

Dr Buckle said emergency cases will be attended to but not referrals.

He added that the pressure on Korle Bu has been because the ground floor of the main ICU has been closed for renovations and the hospital is short of nurses.

He has asked sister hospitals like 37 to help.

Non-emergency cases have been referred to other hospitals within the metropolis.
