ISIOLO Governor Godana Doyo has threatened to sack non-performing health workers. He said there is laxity in service delivery at the Isiolo Level Four Hospital.
Doyo said the hospital's doctors, nurses and clinical officers operate their own clinics while others work at other hospitals. He said the officers should do their jobs or he will hire new staff. "My government will not tolerate officers who continued to reap salaries but with little services to their communities," Doyo said.
He said the county government will invest millions of shillings to offer better health services. Doyo said the district hospital must render necessary services to local communities.
He said the facility cannot serve as a referral hospital because it lacks essential services, drugs and modern equipment. Doyo was addressing Isiolo leaders in his office yesterday. He said his government will work with the national government to ensure the hospital meets set standards.
"We have allocated a huge amount of money towards health sector and this will go to the district referral hospital and others within the county," Doyo said. He said patients keep off the hospital because of lack of drugs and shortage of staff.
