Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists has expressed worry over mushrooming of laboratory facilities across the country.

It says, over 50% of people who work at these facilities are without license.

The situation, the Association said could have dire consequences on the health of people who patronise their services.

President of the Association, Dr Ignatius Awinibuno expressed this concern during a sensitization workshop for members of the Association at Wa in the Upper West Region.

Dr.Awinibuno is therefore calling on the government to pass the Legislative Instrument on Health Institutions and Facilities Act 857 2013 to empower the Association to ensure sanity in the industry.
