We’re working to ensure employment of jobless nurses – MoH

The Ministry of Health has outlined measures taken so far to facilitate the recruitment of health personnel and ensure the payment of unpaid allowances.

This follows a joint demonstration by the rotational nurses, the midwifery association and a group of unemployed nurses over unpaid allowances and unemployment concerns in Accra on Tuesday.

In a media engagement, the Public Relations Officer for the Ministry of Health, Isaac Offei Baah, expressed commitment to promptly address the issues.

“Unfortunately, we have gotten to this level, but we are all aware that we cannot employ without clearance from the Ministry of Finance. That also doesn’t mean that we are not working to ensure that we get adequate clearance and clear all our nurses who are not employed.

“We have enough evidence to show that after we received the list from NMC, we forwarded it to the Minister of Finance. Their leader, who always comes to negotiate on their behalf, can attest to the fact that we have given him copies of evidence to show that the Ministry of Health is committed to ensuring their recruitment and ensuring their posting.”
