Sierra Leone Police Hospital: Witnessing Enhancements 

Updated: Mar 27

The Sierra Leone Police (SLP) Hospital situated in Kingtom has undergone a remarkable transformation under the guidance of William Fayia Sellu, Inspector General of Police (IGP). Within a year, the hospital's medical services have expanded, catering to the needs of the police force and the surrounding communities. This transformation has been achieved through modernization and the installation of state-of-the-art medical facilities and equipment. 

In an exclusive interview with the Deputy Director and Medical Superintendent of the SLP Hospital, ASP Dr. John M. Conteh, the IGP's efforts in revolutionizing the hospital's operations were commended. Dr. Conteh highlighted significant improvements made under the new leadership, including the installation of advanced medical equipment to enhance the efficiency of hospital personnel and create a comfortable environment for in-patients and out-patients.

The hospital has been equipped with laundry machines, cutting-edge testing equipment, and a well-ventilated room for sample collection. Additionally, a permanent chart system for all patients has streamlined administrative processes and enhanced patient care.

Dr. Conteh expressed his pride in the rapid transformation of the hospital, extending his gratitude to the IGP, Mrs. Matilda Doris Sellu, and the Executive Management Board (EMB) of the SLP for their outstanding contributions to the hospital's development.

While acknowledging some challenges faced by the hospital, Dr. Konteh assured the public that plans are underway to establish an under-5 program, a dental clinic, and an eye clinic, providing substantial support to police officers and their families. Furthermore, a team of medical doctors recently completed successful surgeries on police personnel, their families, and members of the general public.

Looking ahead, the Deputy Director and Medical Superintendent disclosed that another team of medical doctors is scheduled to visit Sierra Leone from 3rd April to 8th May 2024 to conduct free surgeries, further cementing the hospital's commitment to providing exceptional medical care to its beneficiaries.

The rapid transformation of the Sierra Leone Police Hospital is a testament to the dedication and vision of the new leadership. This development signifies a promising era of enhanced healthcare services for both the police force and the wider community.
