Korle Bu ordered to stop illegal fees


I am surprised at how an establishment like KBTH will act in such a iunilateral manner. Did it inform patients in advance that it was going to increase its fees? No. to suddenly start charging patients an extra 40-60% of already what some percieve as huge fees is unjustified. The fact that the request is before parliament does not automatically mean it will be approved. The fee could be adjusted downwards. bearing in mind that pay rise is of the order of 5-10% and inflation is about 10%, how can it justify the above increase? It should refund the monies immedeatly, complex or no complex IT programs, after all, the they were created by human beings who are being paid to do such jobs.
