The Ministry of Health says it is surprised nurses who completed training in August just last year would form an unemployed association.
Reacting to the threat by the nurses to demonstrate on April 27 if the ministry does not post them, Public Relations Officer for the ministry, Tony Goodman explained that even processes to get them employed has not even been exhausted.
“Those who completed in 2014 have all been employed. The next level is for Ghana Health Service to announce if there is a vacancy, then they will buy the form and go through an interview process,” he stated.
Tony Goodman added, “after your name is selected it is sent to the ministry for clearance and posting, and we are on it we haven’t gone through the process so I am surprised they are coming this early to call for postings”.
But leader of the Unemployed Nurses Association, Adams Awudu disagreed with his position.
“Mr. Tony with the issue of the forms I disagree. Either you are being economical with the truth or you are misinformed. Currently if you can tell me where the forms are because I know the system is no more in place,” he contended.
The nurses insist the planned demonstration would take place on April 27, claiming the government has failed to fulfill an agreement to post them after training.
They also blamed poor communication between the ministry and trainees for their woes.
