North East Development Commission (NEDC) in partnership with the Federal Ministry of Health has started a five-day training for 10 doctors, nurses and other paramedics on basic emergency care providers courses for emergency healthcare workers in Bauchi State to save lives in the region and the country at large.

At the opening ceremony yesterday held at the Abubakar Tafawa Balewa Teaching Hospital (ATBU-TH) in Bauchi, a consultant urologist and chairman of the Medical Advisory Council of ATBUTH, Dr Haruna Usman Liman, said the participants were selected for the programme, adding that it will not stop at them because they will go to their various units and step down the training to other staff.

According to him, Bauchi is situated at the confluence of many major trunk roads so accidents and emergencies are bound to occur and that it is important for appropriate care to be instituted at the right time to save many lives.

On his part, a representative of the state coordinator of North East Development Commission (NEDC) in Bauchi State, Abdulkadir Ibrahim Baba charged the participants to utilise the opportunity and acquire the requisite skills and step down the knowledge to achieve the desired objectives.
