Doctors have threatened to withdraw outpatient services at public health facilities from Monday, August 6, 2018, unless government resolves outstanding emolument issues.

Members of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) say if after the withdrawal of outpatient services, the government still fails to meet their demands, they will be forced to withdraw emergency services from August 20, 2018.

This stern warning was contained in a communiqué issued by the Association after its 4th National Executive Council meeting held in Jirapa in the Upper West Region from July 27 to 28, 2018.

Top on the grievance list of the country’s doctors, contained in the press release (published below), is what they say is reduced pension benefits following their migration onto the Single Spine Pay Policy, with the conversion difference unpaid since December 2011.

GMA stated that in November 2017 it gave the government up to the end of April 2018 to honour its obligation towards members of the Association following a compulsory arbitration by the National Labour Commission, however, the government failed to deliver on its part of the bargain.

The GMA National Executive Council also wants the Ministry of Health to take immediate steps to “ensure direct transfers of National Health Insurance Levy (NHIL) to the NHIL account at Bank of Ghana and stop the current practice of paying the NHIL to the consolidated account before subsequent transfer into the NHIL account.”
