The event was organised by Dr Sefaakor Ahiaku, a renowned Ghanaian dentist based in Liverpool.

The conference was graced by the High Commissioner to the UK, Papa Owusu-Ankomah, Director-General of the Ghana Health Service, , Dr Anthony Nsiah-Asare and Rector of the Ghana College of Physicians and Surgeons, Professor Jacob Plange-Rhule,  among others.

Briefing the Ghanaian Times after the conference, Dr Sefaakor Ahiaku, said the participants were highly concerned about healthcare standards and issues of medical negligence back in Ghana.

She said that Ghana needed to continue with efforts to come to terms with the health needs of her growing population and ensuring that clinics took responsibility for whatever took place under their care.

Dr Ahiaku highlighted the need for a more effective communication structure between the families of patients and hospital authorities as a way of improving medical service.
