Few days after receiving the report of the Administrative Panel constituted to look into the challenges facing the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital submitted its report, Governor Dapo Abiodun has approved the immediate recruitment of resident doctors for the health institution in line with the interim recommendations submitted by the Panel.

Governor Abiodun ordered that advertisement should be immediately rolled out in all Departments where manpower shortage exists. Also to be recruited are nurses, pharmacists, laboratory scientists and all other categories and cadres of healthcare professionals.

In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin the 9-man committee chaired by Dr Yemi Onabowale, the Chief Medical Director of Reddington Hospital advised the Govt to recruit competent medical doctors to fill all the manpower shortage at the Teaching Hospital.

The Governor had frowned at the infrastructural and staff deficits facing the Teaching Hospital on his visit to the Hospital in June. He had also promised to return the tertiary healthcare facility to its past glory.

While inaugurating the Committee, he had charged members to assess the operational modalities of the hospital and to suggest how to improve the standard in tandem with acceptable universal standard for medical training, research and tertiary health care services.

The other terms of the Committee were to: assess the current operations of the hospital, in line with expectations as a teaching/tertiary institution; determine the state of facilities of the various units and departments and make recommendations to the state on the steps necessary to ensure sustainable operations in the institution; and determine quick wins and palliative actions to stem further degeneration of the institution and facilities.

The Committee was also mandated to: review all third party arrangements in the institution, including the PPP and other services provisioning arrangement and determine their level of compliance at the time of that engagement and with the efficacy but more especially suitability for the intent of the State Government; review and recommend programme and strategies to ensure that the operation of the hospital is self-sustaining and financially independent; and make any other reviews as might be critical to the long-term sustainability of the image and productivity of the institution.
