Four out of the five operating theatres at the Tamale Teaching

Hospital in the Northern Region have been closed down following the

breakdown of the central air-conditioner.

This means that the only referral hospital for the three regions in

the north cannot handle more than three emergency cases at a time.

Patients would have to queue to have their turn because the theatre

can only take one case at a time.

Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Misbao Mohammed told Joy

News the hospital would now prioritise where there are multiple


"We have to identify which cases are more pressing," so they could be

attended to first, he said.

Meanwhile maternity cases are being attended too normally, Misbao noted.
