Doctors Want Level Five Hospitals Surrendered Back To Government

The doctors union have sent a proposal to the senate wanting the level five hospitals in counties handed back to the National Government.

The union also wants counties barred from spending any money allocated to hospitals as well as creation of a health service commission to oversee human resource needs of doctors.

Dr Ouma Oluga, the secretary-general of the Kenya Medical Practitioners Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU), said they want hospitals to spend the money they collect monthly to run hospital affairs. This is currently not allowed in the financial act that guides county expenditure.

These hospitals, which are expected to serve about a million people, have a conditional grant given to them by the government on top of the money they collect, and what is allocated to them.
