Governor Natembeya: All Health Officials To Operate From Hospitals So As To Improve Service Delivery

George <a class=Natembeya: Man who has walked out of top post to vie for governor - The Standard"/>

In an effort to speed up service delivery, Trans Nzoia Governor George Natembeya stated on Monday, November 14, that health officials in his administration will have offices in or close to hospitals.

As a consequence, the offices of the Chief Executive Committee Member (CECM) for health, the Chief Officer, the Director, and the Senior Medical Officers won't be too distant from the hospitals.

According to his tweet, "the chief executive Committee Member for Health, Chief Officer, director, and senior medical officers will have their offices at hospitals for proper supervision and service delivery" in order to improve the quality of healthcare and service delivery.

He remarked while pledging to make sure that the wages of healthcare employees are competitive and paid on time.

The county administrator also forbade doctors working in public institutions from running their own private healthcare enterprises at the cost of their regular employment.

He claims that as a result, prices have dramatically increased since the plan attempts to maximize revenues from people with lesser incomes.

They will have to make a decision, he argues. No medical officer from Transnzoia County will be permitted to serve the public hospitals and attend to their own private clinics. Instead, they must make a decision between serving mwananchi or managing their private clinics, according to Natembeya, in order to prevent conflicts of interest in service delivery.

"We have over 100 physicians, but you won't find any of them in our hospitals because they are too occupied with private matters, which we forbid. Just like every other federal servant, you should arrive at work on time.
