The parked ambulances

Member of Parliament for Tema East constituency, Daniel Titus Glover, has appealed to the Minister of Health, Mr Kwaku Agyeman Manu, to ensure all 307 yet-to-be commissioned Ambulances are fully insured.

According to the Parliamentarian, having the ambulances insured will save the country lots of money as the insurance company would bear the cost for damages to the ambulances.

“I am appealing to the Heath Minister to insure all the ambulances that are yet to be distributed. We need to insure them comprehensively.

“When they are insured and there are costs to be incurred due to certain problems with any or all of the ambulances, those costs would be borne by the insurance company,” he said on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem on Monday.

The Deputy Minister for Transport also took the opportunity to reassure Ghanaians of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s commitment to enhancing healthcare delivery in the country.

The Deputy Minister of Transport’s comments follow the government’s announcement to have all 307 Ambulances commissioned and distributed nationwide tomorrow, January 28.

Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, the Information Minister, who announced this at a news conference in Accra on Sunday, said the digitised Information and Communications Technology system, tracking devices and labeling – all which delayed the early distribution of the Ambulances – had now been fixed on the Ambulances and are ready for distribution.

The Ghana Ambulance Service has signed a five-year Service and Maintenance Agreement with the Suppliers to ensure proper servicing and maintenance of the Ambulances.
