The Upper East Regional Dialysis Center has still not been opened to the public. According to the lead convenor for the establishment of the dialysis center, Dr. Emmanuel Akatibo, the water running through the facility is still being tested.

Dr. Akatibo, speaking to A1 Radio’s Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show, explained that the water running through the facility has failed to meet the standards set because of the high incidence of some chemicals.

The current tests are the third in a row.

“We reran the tests, and we still did not meet the desired levels we needed to use for the dialysis. We had to bring another engineer from Kumasi to take a look at the setup to ensure that everything is okay and for us to now buy some new cylinders. The level of chlorine is higher than what is accepted for us to use for the dialysis. So, he had to buy another cylinder that would help extract the chlorine from the water to the desirable level that we want.”

According to Dr. Akatibo, funds have been forwarded to the engineer to purchase the necessary items to fix the issues. He hopes this can be done by the close of the week.

The lead convenor explained that the only thing holding back the running of the facility is the issue around the water. Consumables for the facility have already been procured, Mr. Akatibo said.
