The Unemployed Registered Nurses Association of Ghana has demanded that the Ministry of Health fasttrack the postings of its members or face its wrath.
According to the Association, the Ministry of Health has neglected them over the last five years, following the completion of their courses, denying them the opportunity to put their skills to good use.
The Association also accused the Ghana Health Service of some form sabotage.
Speaking to the media after picketing at the offices of the Ministry of Health yesterday [Wednesday], Spokesperson of the group, Benson Amoako also alleged that, “this year a communication was sent to all the directorates of the Ghana Health Service across the country to ensure that no university graduate should be given the opportunity to buy the forms.”
He also said he the association had hard evidence to back these claims saying,“we have copies of such communications that have actually brought a lot of frustration.”
Mr. Amoako lamented that the Ministry of Health has “totally neglected nurses trained from the universities,” but said his association was ready to fight this to the end.
