Cape Coast: Ten junior doctors sacked

The Cape Coast Teaching Hospital has sacked ten junior doctors for insubordination. According to the management of the hospital, although they have duly paid the allowances and other incentives due the junior physicians, they have refused to resume duty.

Junior doctors across the country about two weeks ago embarked on a strike over their unpaid salaries, but the house officers at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in Kumasi resumed work last week after receiving firm assurance that their salaries would be paid.

However, house officers at the Cape coast teaching hospital are still on strike. They have vowed to stay home until all their monies are paid.

But in a dismissal letter Wednesday, the Chief Executive of the Cape Coast Teaching hospital Dr. Daniel Asare said his outfit can no longer tolerate the disrespect of the young doctors especially, as the facility has fulfilled its part of the bargain.

The letter also requested the Ghana medical and dental council to, as a matter of urgency, replace the dismissed doctors with new ones.

Meanwhile, the aggrieved doctors noted they will resort to all legitimate means to challenge their dismissal.
