GARDEN RESIDENTS DEMAND 24 HOURS SERVICE AT LOCAL CLINIC

BY NELLY BOTA
Residents of Lusaka’s Garden compound have bemoaned the limited hours of operations at the newly opened Shimizu clinic in that area.
In an interview with Komboni radio news, the residents charged that the clinic only opens to the public from 8 to 12 hours a situation they say denies them access to quality health care services.
One of the concerned residents Martha Phiri said the health post must be operating on a 24 hours basis as some people might fall sick at night.
Ms Phiri laments that the current scenario has forced residents to cover long distances to access medical services from Chipata Clinic.
The residents have since called on their local leaders to engage the health authorities and ensure that the clinic starts to operate on a 24 hours basis.
Meanwhile, Ngwerere ward 19 councilor Adrian Banda said that he is yet to meet with the area member of parliament in an effort to address the concerns raised by the residents
