A Nurses quarters’ is to be constructed soon at Bontibor in the Nkwanta South Constituency in the Volta Region.

The bungalows will serve as residences for the health workers who work in the Community Health and Planning Services (CHPS) which is a health centre located in the area.

Speaking to Ghanamps.gov.gh, the Member of Parliament for Nkwanta South, Gershon Gbediame stated that the absence of accommodation has been a source of inconvenience to the nurses as they have no option than to stay away from the health centre.

He noted that this unfortunate situation is in a way affecting health delivery as the nurses’ trek or travel from their various destinations to attend to patients and other emergency cases, adding that he remains confident that the provision of the quarters will enhance the quality of work by the health officials.

Hon. Gershon Gbediame disclosed that the residences will be built with funds from his share of the MPs Common Fund and the HIPC funds among others.
