Komfo Anokye Hospital managers meet over doctors’ strike

Management of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) are locked up in an emergency meeting to strategize to cater for the repercussions of the decision of medical doctors not to cater for outpatient department cases.

Speaking to the Graphic Online, the Acting Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Mr Ernest Abban confirmed the meeting and noted that with its position as a tertiary hospital, management was minded to ensure that it devised a means to minimise the impact of the action by the medical doctors.

At the hospital, patients coming for review and other treatment but whose conditions` were not life threating were not catered for.

Maternal and Child health Hospital

A visit to Maternal and Child health Hospital, near Pampaso indicated that children whose conditions were not critical were also turned away by nurses.

A mother, Madam Mercy Oppong, told the Graphic Online that she was advised by the nurses to take her sick child to any private clinic for treatment because the doctors were not taking care of outpatient cases.


In a telephone interview, the Administrator of the Manhyia Government Hospital, Mr Samuel Dodzi told the Graphic Online that “there is no problem here. All the doctors are working and taking care of all cases including outpatients.”
