The Sokoto state government has procured 300 specialized ambulances to enhance emergency services in the state. 

Commissioner of Health, Dr. Balarabe Shehu Kakale disclosed this to newsmen Tuesday. 

He said that the gesture was meant  to deepen access to medical care and improve emergency service delivery across the 23 local government areas of the state.

He added that it was meant to ensure that the right clinical/medical resources are provided to the right patient within the right time-frame for their medical needs.

According to Kakale, the ambulances were equipped with necessary health gadgets and equipment.

The commissioner added that a central communication unit had been set up at the State Specialist Hospital to coordinate the ambulances services for easy interface and direction.

"We plan to provide both emergency response and patient transfer when the need arise,, "he stated.

The Commissioner added:" We are placing ambulances in all our hospitals, across major roads and highways and other areas. Basically, we are ensuring that all the 244 political wards in the state have one functional ambulance to aid patients in need."

He explained:"For the ones to be stationed on our highways,  they will serve as primary providers of a 24/7 response to medical and trauma related emergencies. They will provide a disciplined and organised system, allowing a timely response of appropriately qualified health care workers."
