The Director of the Bamenda Regional Hospital says the facility’s haemodialysis centre is being closed temporarily.
This, he says, is “… Due to unforeseen acute breakdown of the machines in the dialysis centre.”
“The haemodialysis centre has been temporarily closed and patients transferred to other General and Regional Hospitals of the country pending a lasting solution to the machines of the centre,” Dr Denis Nsame adds in a radio announcement.
The latest move comes to add to the already challenging situation of kidney patients in the region, many of whom have been complaining about the lack of adequate facilities and health care.
To get healthcare for the time being, they will now be compelled to travel longer distances on not-so-good roads, and inches additional expenditure.
