The Director-General of Ghana Health Service (GHS) Dr. Nsiah Asare has said the government will no longer post health professionals.
Dr. Nsiah Asare said all health professionals after completion should be made to look for their own jobs.
Speaking at the Christian Health Association of Ghana (CHAG) 2018
He said “The present bottlenecks in ensuring that all staffing of existing health facilities simply has to be tackled now, not tomorrow. I am urging your conference to come out pragmatic measures to address this long-standing challenge in the sector.”
He added: “I believe we should stop postings, we should allow every health worker to go and look for a job.”
Dr. Nsiah Asare who was the CEO of KATH said to ensure equal distribution of health staff, the government will no longer post health professionals as has been done in the past.
Instead, vacancies will be announced where available and health professionals will have to apply, go through an interview and recruited.
This means the era of mass recruitment and automatic postings of nurses and other paramedics is over.
