The Andrew Pearson Memorial Medical Centre at Igbo-Ora, Elekuro Diocese, Oyo State is now being led by Damilola the new matron. NHCP has supplied a lot of equipment and the local management team are busy refurbishing and rebuilding so the Centre can reach its potential as a small centre of excellence in primary care.
