The outspoken member of Parliament for Assin Central-Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has exposed doctors and nurses in Ghana.
According to him, this crop of health professionals are the caused of many problems in health sector of our dear Country.
Reacting to an interview with the topic dubbed -Attitude, Kennedy exposed some awful stories from our health sectors.
In his own experience, the minister said he got appendicitis in 2010. He visited a hospital in Accra and the doctor could diagnose him correctly for 2 weeks.
The doctor, in spite of his incompetency, was furious when he (Kennedy) decided to travel abroad for better health service.
That’s why he refused to support some health workers that approached him for help. He said that whenever they (health workers) are at their facilities, they act as though the patients invented the disease on themselves.
He further narrated a story of his son -Kendra Agyapong been diagnosed of having a hole in heart. He said he fought the doctors and took his son to the United States.
At the State, the doctors said it wasn’t a hole in heart and today his son is tall and looking good.
The doctors in Ghana steal drugs and send them to their private hospitals. The doctors then direct patients to their private hospitals. They make money illegally.
This and many other negative attitudes have ruined Ghana – Hon. Kennedy lamented.
