Delay distribution of ambulances – Health Minister begs Akufo-Addo

The National Ambulance Service and the Minister of Health, Mr Kwaku Agyeman-Manu have urged the President, Nana Akufo-Addo to delay the intended distribution of some 275 ambulances to each of the constituencies in Ghana.

The President had indicated in a press encounter in 2019 that the ambulances would be distributed on January 6, 2020, after the total number that has been procured arrived in the country.

But in a letter to the President, the Health Minister supported the request by the National Ambulance Service for the process to be delayed further due to some stated reasons.

According to the National Ambulance Service dated 31 December 2019, some technical issues must be completed to ensure efficient operation of the ambulances have not been completed, hence the request to suspend the proposed distribution date.

The Ambulance Service also added that training of people who will operate the ambulance are yet to be done hence the need to hold on with the distribution.
