Medical practitioners in Delta state have been charged to display true professionalism in the discharge of their duties and be totally committed in rendering quality and excellent medical services.
The head of service of Delta state, Mr. Reginald Bayoko, gave this charge when executive members of the Medical and Dental Consultants’ Association of Nigeria, Delta State Hospital Management Board branch, paid him a courtesy visit on Monday.
Bayoko revealed that medical consultants were known to be some of the best brains as they were highly sought after for their in-depth professional services even as he enjoined them to be ready to give their best at all times not minding some of the challenges they are confronted with, which the HoS said could be resolved amicably.
He disclosed that Governor Ifeanyi Okowa was irrevocably committed to bequeathing an excellent and efficient health care delivery system in the state, adding that engagement of qualified medical doctors and other health personnel to man the hospitals, which the head of service referred to as critical, had always received priority attention of government.

“We need to understand each other amicably so that we can move forward for the good of the society” the HoS said.
Earlier, president of the Medical and Dental Consultants’ Association of Nigeria, Hospital Management Board, Delta state chapter, Dr Vivian Omo-Oghoja, informed the HoS of the improved clinical services across the various government hospitals in the state even as she requested for the engagements of more medical consultants in the state.
Omo-Aghoja, while listing the provision of near-constant power supply, acquisition of 500ma static Siemens x-ray and digital Printer in Sapele Central Hospital, also revealed the commencement of colposcopy services as well as diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures in Warri Central Hospital which she said were all executed through internally generated revenues.
