Medical practitioners in the country have been advised to eschew bickering, rancour and unhealthy rivalry in the interest of the service users.
The Registrar/ Chief Executive Officer, Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria, (MLSCN ) Dr Tosan Erhabor gave the advice during the induction of 65 fresh graduands of the department of Medical Laboratory Science, Achiever University, Owo, Ondo state.
Erhabor said that ” Every citizen should as a matter of right have access to the accurate and reliable medical laboratory test result.
” This would discourage medical tourism to other claimed and the depletion of our meagre resources.
” We must find homegrown solutions to our needs if we are to change the narrative of poor health indices.
” All hands must be on the deck and health professions, whatever their speciality, must learn to work together in the interest of the service users, eschewing bickering, rancour or unhealthy rivalry.
” On our part, MLSCN will continue to promote a stable, united and robust health sector that delivers on the ideals expounded by our heroes past.
