Mobil Nigeria sponsors 355 doctors, nurses on emergency medical services
Mobil Producing Nigeria Unlimited (MPN), an operator of the NNPC/MPN Joint Venture, has revealed that it spent N50 million to train 355 doctors and nurses on emergency medical services in Akwa Ibom.
Mr John Arkley, General Manager, Joint Venture Operations, made this known on Saturday at the closing ceremony of the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) training programme in Eket.
He said the training was part of the joint venture’s community development initiatives aimed at assisting government to provide quality healthcare.
The programme involved doctors and nurses drawn from medical facilities in the four local government areas of Ibeno, Eket, Esit Eket and Onna.
Arkley added that 10 Automatic External Defibrillators (AEDs) were provided for four health facilities in the communities to enable the trainees practise the skills acquired from the training.
He said an independent medical consultancy to monitor and evaluate the impact of the programme in the various communities had been inaugurated.
Arkley revealed that plans had been concluded with another medical consultant to conduct free mobile medical services in all the 31 council areas of the state in April.
