Unhealthy Rivalry among Healthcare Providers in Nigeria

  • December 12, 2014 8:33 AM CET

    This subject is not new to everyone of us. This problem has plagued the Nigerian healthcare sector for years; but seems to have taken a frightening dimension in the past one year. We intend to use this medium to review this subject with an unbiased perspective.

    In what ways do you think medical professionals have contributed to this mess?

    Health workers claim the leadership of the healthcare sector is not in line with international best practises. How true is this claim?

    In respect of the above, do you think this is the single most important aspect of our healthcare system that needs to be aligned with international best practises?

    What avenues should be sought to end this rivalry; and restore a harmonious relationship among healthcare providers?

    Please feel free to add your own dimensions to this discourse.

    Also invite your colleagues to join this discourse.

    Hospitals are micro settings of the greater political scene, there is chaos in the central govt hence chaos in the hospitals . Notwithstanding the present rivalry will continue until comes out with clear career paths for every cadre.Doctors will always be doctors aspiring to be better doctors, other health professionals should also aspire to be better pharmacists, nurses, midwives, lab scientists etc.One thing Iis clear the health care form , function and structure needs sincere innovation. Skills and professional knowledge must be recognised, fostered and rewarded in the civil service.
