Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State says the state government has concluded plans to establish a Faculty of Medicine and a Teaching Hospital at Umaru Musa Yar’adua University, Katsina.

Masari said that the measure became necessary in order to train more health personnel and promote healthcare delivery system at all levels in the state.

The governor made this known during the public presentation of the proposed state Teaching Hospital, on Saturday in Katsina.

He said that the government would make necessary funds available for the establishment of the Faculty of Medicine and the teaching hospital.

According to him, the state government is committed to bring healthcare delivery system to the door steps of the people through the establishment of the teaching hospital.

“When the hospital is established, the people of the state will no longer travel to Zaria in Kaduna State or Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital for treatment.

Masari said that the government had contacted some medical experts for their advice on how to establish the medical school and the teaching Hospital.

Earlier, the Katsina state Commissioner for Health, Hajiya Mariyatu Usman , said that government was compelled to establish the teaching hospital due to the shortage of medical personnel in the state.

According to her, the state government has only 120 medical doctors under its employment.

“There is shortage of virtually all cadres of healthcare workers in the state; this has resulted to inappropriate utilisation of health facilities in the essential services.

She said that the state government had sent six medical doctors for special training in order to facilitate the establishment of the faculty of medicine and the teaching hospital.

However, the state government had selected three hospitals in Katsina, Daura and Funtua to serve as referral hospitals in the state.
