Physician Assistants call off protests as rotation nurses give gov’t ultimatum

Unemployed Physician Assistants trained at the Kintampo College of Health say they are suspending their picketing at the Health Ministry upon the intervention of Deputy Minister of Health, Alexander Abban.

The physician Assistants on Monday threatened not to leave the premises of the Health Ministry until they were given specific timelines on when they will be posted.

The about 40 physician assistants who graduated from the Kintampo College of Health in 2016 said several calls on authorities to post them seem to have fallen on deaf ears.

This situation, they say has negatively affected them hence their protest at the ministry to further drum home their demands.

Speaking on Eyewitness News, Joshua Adu Adjei, one of the leaders of the Physician Assistants said they have called off the action.

Meanwhile, the Coalition of Rotation Nurses and Midwives for 2019/2020, say they are disappointed with government’s handling of their concerns and would be forced to hit the streets if nothing changes within the next 7 days.

The Nurses held a press conference yesterday to register their displeasure over the non-payment of their mandatory allowances since their engagement.

The National Convener of the Coalition, Fabian Suta, told Citi News that they expect Government to act on their demands.
