Professor Richard Kwasi Amankwah, Vice Chancellor of UMaT, on Thursday, 30th September, 2021 paid a courtesy call on the Tarkwa Nsuaem Municipal Director of Health Services Mrs Caroline Effah Otoo. The call was part of the Vice Chancellor’s plans to familiarise himself with stakeholders of the University and to express appreciation of the University to the Municipal Health Directorate for the extension of various services to the members of the University Community.
In his remarks, Prof Richard K. Amankwah thanked the Director for her proactive response to the University Community at the early stages of the COVID 19 pandemic. According to Prof Amankwah, the swift services offered by the Directorate were well thought of which aided the safety of members of the University Community. He added that the COVID 19 vaccination exercises on the University Campus will go a long way to safeguard the lives of members of the Community.
The Vice Chancellor informed the Director that the University has plans to upgrade its Clinic to the status of a Polyclinic so as to offer enhanced services to members of the University Community and communities within the University’s catchment area. He, therefore, requested the services of a Medical Officer from the Directorate on secondment at the facility to enhance service delivery to the clients of the facility.
Mrs Caroline Effah Otoo welcomed the Vice Chancellor and his entourage and assured them of the continuous support of the health directorate to the University and all other stakeholders. According to the Director, the request by the Vice Chancellor for a Medical Officer on secondment was in the right direction and that the request would formally be put before the Regional Directorate for consideration.
