BUCHANAN, Feb 12 (LINA) - The Government Hospital in Buchanan is said to be experiencing severe drug shortage due to delay in the supply of drugs and allotment to the hospital.

According to Stephen Wannah, Chief Administrator of the hospital, out of the four quarters expected to have been supplied last year, the hospital received only two quarters from January 1 to June 30, 2013.

Mr. Wannah thanked Senator Gbehzongar Findley for his contributions towards the up- keep of the hospital as well as the Bassa legislative caucus for their financial support and the provision of medical equipment.

Mr. Wannah called on the government through the health ministry to redouble efforts to keep the hospital functional.

The chief administrator has meanwhile lamented that only 60% of employees at the hospital are on payroll, while the rest are not on government payroll.

Mr. Wannah said the hospital has 200 employees with two ambulances which need urgent repair.

He disclosed that the hospital receives US$175,000 annually, while the National Drug Service supplies it with drugs.
