Stop churning out lies to malign us: doctor warns govt

As the strike by the Ghana Medical Association begins to bite, the government has been warned to stop putting out false information to cause disaffection for doctors.

A striking doctor, who does not want to be named, told Joy FM’s Top Story Thursday he is “upset” that false information is being circulated on social media by assigns of the government.

“Government is playing with the issue,” the livid doctor pointed out, adding that persons working for the government are “churning out lies on us”.

Members of the Ghana Medical Association withdrew their services nationwide today after four hours of negotiations with government on their condition of service yesterday failed.

According to GMA’s road map, doctors will begin with the withdrawal of OPD services today for a week. The country’s premier health facility, Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital has announced that its OPD has been closed.

If after a week, the concerns of the doctors are not resolved, they will withdraw emergency services and they will later resign en masse.
