During the meeting in Tamale, Management Members of TTH took turns to explain the operations of the hospital and the challenges they faced.

Dr Atiku said broken down equipment had been fixed while new units had been created to ensure improved health care delivery for patients.

He urged members of the public to make use of the hospital’s complaints unit to address any issue regarding service delivery at the facility.
