“Today morning a team of doctors who attended to him in the ward and managed to book MRI scanning for him scheduled for on 30th June 2020 at the same facilities, this is to determine both causes and treatment to his condition.”
“So far we thank the hospital management for hearing our call when there was a delay in admitting him.”
