(The Presenter Liz Agbai)
Healthline is a Television Clinic on the largest television in Africa, The NTA (Nigeria Television Authority). As the name depicts, it attends to all patients with diverse ill health without prescribing on air. Recommendation and referrals are usually given by the attending doctor (who must be a consultant), to the patient who reaches him/her via e-mail, text or direct voice call. A topic usually is picked for the day; deliberation and education of the public is done around the topic.
Healthline is fixed for midnight bearing in mind that sickness most often manifests more at night and more often than not the patient is alone as most healthy persons are asleep. Healthline then serves as the much needed companion. What we do on the programme also includes answering health questions even outside the studio via e-mail [email protected] where necessary, patients are referred to specialists according to their ailments.
