She said expectant women will no longer travel long distances to seek surgical services and other gynaecology related services now that Pirimiti Community Hospital has introduced such service
“We used to refer many patients to Zomba Central Hospital and Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital but many found it difficult to afford up- keep to sustain their stay in such distant hospitals,” Sister Mary Njuguna added.
She therefore assured people that Pirimiti Community Hospital has personnel that are capable of discharging the newly introduced services.
She disclosed that from November 7th to 18th November this year, Pirimiti hospital will offer special services to do with skin, contractures, cleft lips, cleft palate and club foot for free.
