Kenya’s largest hospital to stop walk-in patients


Kenya’s largest referral hospital will from July stop attending to walk-in patients, the official in charge of running services in the country’s capital, Nairobi, has announced.

Nairobi Metropolitan Service Director Mohammed Badi said the move will help decongest the national referral hospital.

The news has received mixed reactions online with some people expressing concern that smaller hospitals will not be able to cope.

Others lauded the move saying it will improve service to patients who need specialised care at the national hospital.

Last month the health ministry said it was reviewing the sate of smaller hospitals in the capital to help decongest the bigger ones.Article share tools
