Community Liaison Unit

The Community Liaison Unit was created in January 2012 by the Management of the University College Hospital under the leadership of the Chief Medical Director, Prof. Temitope O. Alonge. This was necessitated as a result of the deep understanding of the need to formalize the robust relationship between the Hospital and its immediate environment as well as the advantages inherent in building stronger ties with the wider society.
