President Launched Police Emergency Medical Intervention
On Tuesday, 11th January 2022, the President of Ghana launched the GH¢6.1 million Police Emergency Medical Intervention Fund, aimed at providing immediate financial assistance for the medical treatment of police officers, who get injured in the line of duty. He made a modest contribution of one hundred thousand cedis (GH¢100,000) to the Fund.
He also commissioned a Virtual Medical Centre at the Police Hospital, which is an end-to-end video hospital management system, will allow patients, no matter where they are located in the country, to undertake virtual consultation with healthcare professionals at this hospital. Police personnel, irrespective of their location, can now access healthcare services from the hospital anywhere in the country, at any time. Officers of the Service are guaranteed a protected platform for seamless consultations with the doctor
He again commissioned the New Out-Patient-Department (OPD) facility at the Hospital, which will help decongest the existing facility, which, hitherto, was responsible for seeing patients with emergency cases as well as to regular OPD patients.
