The University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC) which is beginning operations today, will treat all patients who will be referred there free of charge.

This will continue till two in weeks time when fees will be charged accordingly.

This is according to authorities who are holding a presser this morning to start the event today.

The facility was scheduled to open in November 2017, but was kept locked to the public due to a tussle between the Minister of Health and the University of Ghana over who manages the $217 million facility.
