 The Keynote theme of the workshop, “PRIVATE MEDICAL LABORATORY PRACTICE: EXPLORING THE POSSIBILITIES OF MERGER AND ACQUISITION FOR STRATEGIC GROWTH” was delivered by the Registrar/ CEO of Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria [MLSCN], Dr Tosan Erhabor. He appealled to Medical Laboratory Scientists to have a change of orientation because, according to him, there is urgent need for more investment in human resource aggregations, facilities upgrade, personnel capacity upscale, effective coordination, integrated quality management system and committed approach towards Laboratory Accreditation.

He went further to say that the essence is to promote the strategic growth of the medical laboratories especially in the private sector, for optimized and quality services as well as high financial returns on investment (ROI). Dr Erhabor called the attention of his colleagues to the fact that non Medical Laboratory Scientists are taking advantage of the great opportunity in the sector by establishing mega laboratories.

 The Golden Registrar as he was fondly called also suggested the way forward. He opined that all medical laboratory facilities must register with MLSCN, Private medical laboratory proprietors should pool resource together and collapse their facilities to establish mega laboratories, that a proper feasibility study on the private medical laboratory market should be done to drive the modalities and scope of the merger, Colleagues in the private sector should begin to see private practice as a big business not a part-time job, Mutual trust and understanding amongst colleagues should be developed so as to effectively drive business initiatives and strategic growth in private practice

Evidence of QMS implementation is a necessity for the operation of medical laboratory services in Nigeria.

 In his conclusion, MLSCN boss assured participants that “the current realities in the private Medical Laboratory Services does not support high patronage and generation of quality test results from most of the small/medium private laboratories. The Registrar was very emphatic in his presentation that the time to upgrade and upscale through effective merger to establish mega facilities is now and the emergence of competitive private facilities owned by other stakeholders makes this more imperative. He further reassured the participants that the MLSCN will continue to do all within her powers to keep Medical Laboratory Scientists relevant in the practice of their profession especially in the private sector explaining that they intend to achieve this through the sustained fight against quackery and sub-standard practices by colleagues.”
