Overworked members of the Association of Residents Doctors, Ladoke Akintola Teaching Hospital, Ogbomoso, Oyo State chapter, have appealed to the state governor, Seyi Makinde, to address the dire situation they are currently facing.

The LAUTECH doctors in a series of posts on X on Sunday, lamented the unattractive remuneration package, noting that the situation is a significant deterrent for prospective applicants.

They stressed that the failure to address these financial concerns compromises patient care and undermines the hospital’s ability to retain qualified medical professionals.

The tweet reads, “LAUTECH Teaching Hospital Ogbomoso needs your urgent intervention @seyiamakinde. Our doctors are overworked due to a shortage of manpower. No one wants to come because of abysmal pay.

“Residents taking back-to-back calls are prone to errors while covering multiple. LAUTECH Teaching Hospital Ogbomoso is the only teaching hospital in the South West yet to pay new hazard allowance, MRTF and new CONMESS.”
