Some Junior Doctors across the country say they are unable to cope anymore with their unpaid salary issues which have remained unresolved for 10 months.
They’ve however petitioned the Controller and Accountant General’s Department for a possible response to the matter.
The group contended that after weeks of raising red flags about their situation, only a handful of doctors were sorted with their one-month salary out of the 10 months salary arrears.
The medical house officers who began work in September 2014, said they had even taken loans to fend for themselves which have started piling up on them, spokesperson for the aggrieved doctors, Dr. Nana Kissi Attafah revealed.
“We have actually listened to the Health Minister in Parliament say that doctors have been sorted in terms of being posted and being paid but it’s not true! Not all of us have been paid,” he insisted.
“Those of us in Cape Coast Teaching Hospital, 37 Military Hospital, Police Hospital, Brong Ahafo Regional Hospital, Volta Regional Hospital and the Tema General Hospital have not been paid our salaries.”
They fear their situation won’t allow them give off their maximum best in effective delivery of healthcare service at their various hospitals.
