The Member of Parliament for the Gomoa West, Francis Kojo Arthur has hinted that plans are advanced for the establishment of a polyclinic at Dawurampong.

Speaking to ghanamps.gov.gh, Mr. Arthur indicated that provision of primary health care is very important to avoid needless deaths and to guarantee good health for the citizenry to contribute to socioeconomic development.

According to him, at present, patients have to travel as far as 10 to 14km to other town to access health facilities which sometimes resulted in deaths.

Mr. Arthur said the government took this initiative to reduce the maternal mortality recorded in the district. Construction of the health facility is in line with the national agenda of increasing health facilities towards improving maternal health in the country.

Meanwhile, the MP has donated an ambulance to the community to facilitate transportation of people in need of emergency health assistant to nearby hospital.
