Cabinet Approves Kawempe, Kiruddu As Referal Hospitals
Cabinet has sanctioned a proposal by ministry of health to grant referral status to Kawempe, Kirudu and Naguru hospitals as part of the efforts to improve service delivery.
The decision means that the three hospitals will become semi-autonomous in making decisions; budgets and collecting none tax revenues.
ICT, Information, and National Guidance Minister Frank Tumwebaze says that the cabinet decision aims at strengthen health service delivery especially in the Kampala Capital City area.
Meanwhile cabinet has also cleared a request to enhance salaries of KCCA political leaders following their complaints channeled by the Kampala minister Bettie Olive Kamya.
Government has rejected similar requests from doctors and other civil servants but Tumwebaze says that the enhancement of KCCA political leaders will be justified by the relevant minister.
