Leadership of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has said it will not entertain any ‘piecemeal
solution’ to their grievances.
The President of the Ghana Medical Association, Dr Kwabena Adusei Poku told Journalists at a news conference in the Ashanti regional Capital Kumasi on Sunday April 7, 2013 that: “The national executive council will like to put on record that the Ghana Medical Association will not, and I repeat, will not accept any piecemeal and verbal solutions to this problem”.
Following a National Executive Council meeting of the association on Saturday April 6, 2013 the doctors have decided to “From Monday, April 8 to Sunday, April 14, 2013, withdraw all out-patient services and only attend to emergencies and in-patients.”
“From Monday, April 15, 2013, all emergency services shall be suspended whilst in-patient care continues until these problems are solved.”
President of the Association, Dr Opoku Adusei, issued the warning Sunday as he formally announced the doctors’ strike, which begins on Monday.
