Inside Kumasi, Suntreso: Pregnant Woman & Baby Die Over GH¢500 ‘Doctor Motivation Fee’

A 30-year-old pregnant woman died with her unborn baby at the Suntreso Government Hospital in Kumasi on Wednesday, 4 July 2018 after the health post refused her entry into the labour ward because her husband could not immediately pay a GH¢500 ‘Doctor Motivation Fee’.

Angela Afriyie Agyemang later died at the theatre just as her husband had made available the GH¢500 fee for which she had been denied medical attention.

Pastor Solomon Lamo Latiff of the House of Faith Ministry in Kumasi, husband to the deceased, said he had taken his wife to the hospital the previous day when she started experiencing labour pangs after her due date exceeded by a week.

He told Moro Awudu on Class91.3FM’s Executive Breakfast Show that one Dr Sarpong then informed him that a Caesarean Section (CS) was to be done but not until he had paid the GH¢500 doctor motivation fee.

Pastor Agyemang said he intends suing the hospital for medical negligence, since, according to him, the hospital allowed several other women in labour into the theatre while his wife was kept sitting in a wheelchair for over three hours due to his inability to immediately pay the GH¢500 ‘Doctor Motivation Fee’.
