Government is likely to change the date for the commissioning of the newly procured 300 ambulances for distribution to each Constituency in the country.
This is due to letters sighted by topnewsgh.com from National Ambulance Service and Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu requesting for a postponement of the commissioning date to provide enough time for the National Ambulance Service to address what they described as important technical issues.
According to the Prof. Ahmed Zakariah, the ambulances are still being tagged and is expected to be completed in two weeks, while service centers are also being set up across the country to prevent ambulances from traveling long distances for servicing.
Staff training, state of the art ICT dispatch systems and the installation of tracking devices are also currently ongoing and expected to be completed in the third week of January.
With just a few days to the scheduled date for its commissioning, topnewsgh is yet to see a response to this request for postponement.
