The ministry of Health in Mufulira district has received four vehicles from the recently procured vehicles by government.
Mufulira District Commissioner Dyford Muulwa told ZANIS in interview today that the district is grateful to government for allocating the vehicles to the department of health in the district because transport has been a challenge in health service delivery in the district.
He said the four vehicles will service the two government hospitals, Kamuchanga District hospital and Ronald Ross General Hospital.
Two of the vehicles will be used as ambulances for the hospitals while the other two will be utility vehicles for Ronald Ross Nursing School and the district health office.
Mufulira district government hospitals have been operating without reliable ambulances for the last five years and this raised a lot of concern from both the district development coordinating committee and the general public, who complained over the use of a staff minibus at an ambulance.
