Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission has said that it received about 100 complaints between July 2018 and the end of 2019 following the inauguration of the Patients Bill of Rights.

Director General of the commission, Mr Babatunde Irukera disclosed this when he appeared on News Agency of Nigeria Forum in Abuja.

Irukera said prior to the inauguration of the bill in July 2018, the commission received only one complaint.

According to him, the bill has recorded significant successes in the past one year as four medical practitioners have been suspended, four others disciplined while some are still under disciplinary processes.

This year, for the very first time, a public enquiry was held into the conduct of a medical facility, when there were allegations that a young lady who was stabbed by robbers was presented at the facility and they did not provide emergency intervention on account of the fact that there was no police report.
