Nurses can now get jobs – Government gives green light

Health professionals whose recruitment was halted following a change in power can now expect to be employed by the Ghana Health Service.

In a memo dated March 20, 2017, the Health minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu reversed a February 2017 memo directing regional health directors to suspend recruitments.

That memo explained that “the suspension is not a cancellation but to allow the Ministry of Health to finalise all issues related to financial clearance”.

The suspension which affected 8,634 professionals was not without a response from unemployed graduates.

Some health professionals mainly nurses, pitched camp at the health ministry last week Wednesday vowing not to leave until they received a positive response to their demands to be employed.

Some say they had been home for more than two years since completing their respective programs.

The Minority in Parliament slammed the Akufo-Addo government for an ‘unreasonable decision’ to halt the recruitment of more than 8,600 nurses.

The Minority also condemned the government for halting a recruitment process aimed at employing 20,000 nurses.

“These are the young people they promised jobs,” Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu said, stressing that “the young people do not care about which [government] gave financial clearance. What they want is bread and butter”.

The Health ministry has now given the green light to process the employment details of the affected professionals.

The latest directive asked regional directors to stick to employment ceilings given to each region.
