Nigeria urges health facilities to join MLSCN laboratory accreditation program

Abuja, Nigeria (CU)_ The Federal Government asked all federal tertiary institutions, Federal Medical Centers (FMCs), and Federal Specialist Hospitals throughout the nation to enroll in the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria (MLSCN) certification program to ensure the accuracy of laboratory test findings.

It emphasized that certification and the provision of accurate and trustworthy laboratory test findings are recognized as characteristics of high-quality service across the world. As a result, it advised all Federal Tertiary hospitals to become certified within the next few years.

Dr Olorunnimbe Mamora, Minister of State for Health, made the announcement in Abuja while launching MLSCN Accreditation Service as an Associate member of International Laboratory Accreditation Co-operation (ILAC) and the presentation of an ISO 15189:2012 Accreditation certificate to the National Tuberculosis Reference Laboratory Saye–Zaria in Kaduna State.

The minister encouraged all the healthcare facilities and institutions to enroll into the MLSCN accreditation programme. He said, “I urge all Federal Teaching Hospitals, Federal Medical Centres and Federal Specialist Hospitals in the country to key into the MLSCN accreditation programme within the next couple of years in order to change the current narrative, as it has never been more imperative in the light of existential realities in the health sector”.

Dr Tosan Erhabor, the Registrar/Chief Executive Officer of the MLSCN, spoke about the importance of the accreditation process. He added, “It is pertinent to re-emphasise the relevance of accreditation as a means of demonstrating technical competence. Hence it is quite imperative for more medical laboratory facilities to key into the accreditation process. In doing so, they should be mindful that MLSCN accreditation services are the first point of call for seeking accreditation in Nigeria.
