Share

Nchanga Member of Parliament, Derrick Chilundika says he is impressed with the rehabilitation works at Nchanga North General Hospital under Constituency Development Funds (CDF).

Speaking during the tour of CDF projects in Chingola, Mr Chilundika said Nchanga hospital is a referral hospital which caters for Nchanga, Chingola, and Chilabombwe Constituencies.

Mr Chilundika who is also Luapula Province Minister said the three constituencies have a joint project of rehabilitating the hospital as it has inadequate fund allocation under infrastructure rehabilitation.

He said Nchanga Constituency has committed itself to play a part in ensuring that works at the hospital are done.

Mr Chilundika said government is rehabilitating ward five, outpatient under the 2021/2022 CDF.

He further said a mortuary unit as well as modern police post is also being constructed for the benefit of residents near the hospital.

Mr Chilundika said the estimated time of completion of the rehabilitation works is in phases while some will be commissioned in less than three months.

“Another project for the hospital is plumbing works, we drilled a borehole and don’t expect this hospital to have challenges with water. It must have running water 24/7,” he said.

And Nchanga North General Hospital Medical Superintendent, Peter Phiri said the facility is a specialized hospital as it handles all cases from the district.

He said thanked government through the local leaders for the support being rendered to the health institution.
