UTH resort to emergency cases as doctors strike continues
The University Teaching Hospital (UTH) Public Relations Manager, Pauline Mbangweta has urged the public to ensure that patients are taken to their local health centers as the highest referral hospital is only attending to emergency cases.
The situation is as a result of the countrywide strike by Resident doctors who are demanding for improved condition service.
Ms Mbangweta also maintained that UTH is not affected by the on-going countrywide strike by Resident Doctors.
Speaking in an interview today Mrs Mbangweta said operations at the hospital are normal as student doctors, senior doctors and their foreign counterparts are currently attending to patients.
However, a check by QFM at the UTH this morning, found the filter clinic closed and a few doctors attending to patients at the admissions ward.
Resident Doctors went on a country wide strike on Monday demanding for good conditions of service.
