Protocols for the Relocation of Health Facilities.
➢ Health Facilities that intend to relocate to another premise shall forward a
Letter of Notification to the Agency, stating the reasons for relocation, the
address of the premise it intends to relocate to and the contact details of the
Practitioner-in-charge (operating officer) of the facility.
➢ The health facility’s Practitioner-in-charge will be contacted to acknowledge
the receipt of the Letter of Notification and to request the payment of
N30,000.00 Administrative and Inspection fee.
➢ The Health Facility pays the fee and either brings the evidence of payment to
HEFAMAA office or scan to the Agency’s email address.
➢ Once the payment is confirmed, the Inspectorate Department schedules a visit
to the proposed location to assess the premise, structure, utilities
➢ If the facility meets the relevant standards and approval is granted, the proprietor
concludes the renting process and relocates the facility.
➢ The ICT unit changes the address of the facility in the Agency’s database.
NB: Health facilities should notify the Agency before renting a new premise and
relocating. However, those that have relocated before forwarding Notification Letter
to the Agency will still carry out the protocols but run the risk of suspension of
registration if the new location does not meet the Agency’s required standards.
