Stop cheating people with exorbitant consultation fees: MP betty Nambooze to private health facilities

Betty Nambooze

Mukono Municipality Member of Parliament, Nambooze Kaireke has urged proprietors of private clinics, especially in slums areas to reduce or remove consultation fees they charge patients upon visiting medical facilities which she says limits people from going to health facilities.


According to Nambooze, most people go to the hospital when they actually know their illness and upon visiting the hospital they are charged both consultation fees and treatment fees and such exorbitant fees have led many to resort to staying home and practicing self-medication.
