UPC Calls for Fresh Training of Retired Medical Workers

The Uganda People’s Congress (UPC) has called for fresh training for the retired medical workers before they are being recruited once more saying that medical practice requires keeping in touch with recent advances in medical science and clinical practice.

The call comes following the recent situation at Nakawuka health centre in Wakiso district where residents complained about poor health service delivery. Government would later resolve to recall the retired medical workers to serve in the health department.

UPC has recommended that government reviews packages for all medical workers including retirement benefits and ensure they are relatively competitive, approved build more hospitals with adequate accommodation for the health workers and fund , and support the upgrading and provision of theatres, clinic wards, equipment, vehicles and other facilities in both health centres and referral hospitals to ensure balanced health service delivery.

‘’If the government calls upon the retired medical workers let it make sure that they still have the skill to treat our people. Right now the country has got a lot of medical issues to deal with, we acknowledge it but they should train them to meet the medical standards of our people ’’ said Christopher Lwanga Apollo head of ideology, research and documentation department UPC.

Lwanga also asked for support from the people of Omoro district and Rubanda district to vote the UPC cadres in their respective positions.

In Omoro District, UPC fronted Maria Skaka Lapolo as the candidate for Women Member of Parliament while Dorothy Nyakeishikyi is the candidate for female youth councillor, Rubanda District.

The elections are scheduled to take place on Monday August 29th.
