The Waterloo Division has received free medical services, treatment and quality medicines from the Sierra Leone Police Hospital in Kingtom under the direction of the Department of Public Health.

The exercise is scheduled for two days.

In a brief chat with the media team of the Waterloo Police, DSP Mr. Mahmoud TS Konneh, who led the fourteen-member medical team, explained that โ€œThe IGP is very concerned about the health and well-being of all policemen.

He therefore ensured the availability of funds to procure quality test kits and medicines, improve existing health facilities and conduct free and voluntary screening for diabetes and other health-related diseases.” Konneh advised workers to “go to the police hospital and seek treatment as soon as possible ill.”

DPC Amadu Bah of CID Waterloo police station, who benefited from the free medical services, lauded the initiative and commended the police administration for prioritizing the health of its personnel and bringing medical services and treatment to their doorsteps.

As a result, he noted, “I’ve never had a diabetes test in my adult life, except today.” She was advised to manage her weight and exercise regularly.

Hundreds of workers stood in long lines patiently waiting for treatment and delivery of medical equipment and medicines.
