The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA), Anambra branch has called on the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) to issue special vehicle number plates to medical practitioners in the country.

Chairman of NMA, Dr Jide Onyekwelu, made the call during a courtesy visit to the Sector Commander of FRSC in the state, Mr Andrew Kumapayi on Thursday.

Onyekwelu said the move would ensure easy identification of health workers on roads.

He also called for friendship and collaboration with the corps, saying that both parties undertook emergency life saving operations.

“The NMA is campaigning against quackery to ensure that only recognised doctors’ stamps were seen on all medical reports the FRSC might need.

“We want a joint training with the corps on basic life support and activities of special marshals.

“The collaboration would ensure that FRSC operatives are further equipped with knowledge of crash victim handling, Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS),” the NMA chairman said.
