Scores of patients at the Tamale Teaching Hospital in the Northern region have rejected alleged moves by the hospital to privatize its laboratory services.

The patients have argued that access to healthcare in the region will be very expensive if laboratory services are outsourced, Accra-based Joy FM reported.

The managing board of the hospital, which is reportedly in talks to outsource the laboratory to a private company, said the move is to ensure effective service delivery at the laboratory.

The transaction is part of a Private Public Partnership (PPP) agreement where the private company who receive the contract will ensure the efforts of hospital management are complemented leading to quality of service to its clients.

But patients have vehemently opposed the move, adding that they were not consulted by management before taking the decision.

The situation is said to be heightening tension between management and senior staff of the hospital as well.
