Lagos appeals to hospitals to stop demanding police report before treating gun wounds

The Lagos state Government has appealed to all health care providers to stop demanding police report before treating gun wounds. It also appealed that patients who need emergency treatment should also be treated without asking for evidence of funds.

The State Commissioner for Health, Prof Akin Abayomi made the appeal yesterday while reacting to investigations by the Ministry of Health.

He revealed that some health facilities in the State are in the habit of rejecting or delaying care to trauma victims which has in some cases resulted in avoidable loss of lives and must be stopped.
