The Minister said it was due to delay in payment to Philps which was responsible for the maintenance of the X -Ray machine. He said the contract agreement between the Ministry and Philips has not been fully adhered to hence the unfortunate incident.

Mr Segbefia stated that although items like X-Ray machines and other equipment do not fall under the National Health Insurance (NHIS), some health institutions rely on the Government to maintain such facilities.

He said measures have been put in place to ensure that Government hospitals take care of these things using monies Generated from their Internally Generated Fund (IGF) in the near future.

The total cost of the repair of the X-Ray machine is 6000 US Dollars.
