This is a novel innovation by top management. For the past 2 years all indigent patients have been able to access service including major Surgery from this fund. A fully furnished office is being allocated to the fund committee members for use as secretariat. The fund has been so successful that all inpatients who are indigent have accessed services of any magnitude that is fully paid by the Paupers fund committee. We are happy to report that the Nigerian Health Care Excellence Award (NHEA) 2018 gave us a Special recognition award. We also note with satisfaction that the funds still available from the present patterns of spending is likely to last for 5-6 years more.
