The Zonal Clinic of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) on Tuesday organised free medical outreach at Egbejila community, along Airport Road, Ilorin.
Mrs Esther Ubaka, the Matron of the Zonal Clinic of FRSC, RS8HQ, said that the outreach was organised to assist the Egbejila community to have access to healthcare services.
Ubaka explained that the free medical outreach began in 2021 across the zones, while Zone 8 covers Kogi, Ekiti and Kwara.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the free medical outreach was fully sponsored by the Corps in collaboration with Bioraj Pharmaceutical, Peace Pharmacy, Kwara Chemical, Tuyil Pharmacy and Biomedical in Ilorin.
The matron said that the Zonal Clinic conduct free medical outreach every three months and the theme for the present quarter was “Health For All”.
“The health week would have started on Monday, but due to the public holiday we decided to start from October 3rd to 6th daily from 8 a.m to 3 p.m.
“The first day of the health week started with health talk and medical checkup, while the second day would be consultation for adults, medication and optometry.
“The third day would be consultation for children, medication and optometry, while the fourth day would be medical checkup for all, as well as consultation, medication and optometry,” she said.
Ubaka explained that the Clinic had 12 zones, while Ilorin is the 8th zone and there was a directive from the headquarters to conduct free medical outreach to mosques, churches, motor parks and other public places.
“The clinics in Kogi and Ekiti are also conducting their medical outreach this October, though different days, but the same quarterly basis.
“The people conducting the test are officials of road safety who are medical professionals in different fields of knowledge.
“We envisage that a minimum of 50 people will come out for test and treatment, so we are to check their blood pressure and conduct various medical test,” she said.
The matron said that the clinic was located in the sector under the zonal command and open for everyone, not only the corps.
Mr Muhammad Alabi, a 71-year-old beneficiary, who spoke to NAN, appreciated the kind gesture and called on other government and private organisations to emulate the gesture by assisting the less privileged in the society.
He confirmed that the medical outreach was free, adding that he had the opportunity to complain about body pain and was given medication.
Mrs Fatima Saheed, another beneficiary, said that she was able to collect medication for herself and also took her children for checkup after school hours, and they were all attended to.
