KATH to suspend new admissions as doctors strike on Wednesday over accommodation challenges

Doctors at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) have declared plans to strike on Wednesday, March 13, 2024, because of convenience challenges.

The Ghana Medical Association has supported the strike, which will just effect new confirmations, as all doctors have consented to agree with the Association’s directive.

This implies that patients who might have been conceded for therapy or care at KATH might have to look for clinical consideration somewhere else or face defers in getting care.

The choice to strike came after in excess of 20 specialists got ousting sees from their ongoing homes, apparently offered to private designers. Following a crisis meeting, the specialists collectively consented to hit in fortitude with their partners confronting ousting.

As indicated by Dr. Paa Kwasi Baidoo, the Ashanti Provincial Leader of the Ghana Clinical Affiliation, the specialists were allowed a one-week final proposal by the Ashanti Territorial Planning Board to clear their homes.

Dr. Baidoo communicated dissatisfaction at the unexpected relocation of clinic staff, featuring a concurrence with Manhyia Castle for new facilities before the land handover, which has purportedly been overlooked.
