Scores of patients and staff of the Tamale Teaching Hospital last week rejected moves by the hospital to privatize its laboratory services.

The patients argued that access to healthcare in the region will be very expensive if laboratory services were privatised.

The transaction was said to be a 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 and staff vehemently opposed the move, adding that they were not consulted by management before taking the decision.
