General News of Thursday, 31 December 2015
Immediate Past President of the Ghana Medical Association, Dr. Adom Winful has passed away Thursday afternoon at the Tetteh Quarshie hospital after a short illness.
Greater Accra President of the GMA Dr. York confirmed the tragic news to Joy FM.
Dr. Emmanuel Winful was president of the GMA from 2007 to 2011. During his second term, the GMA locked horns with government over the implementation of the Single Spine Salary Structure in 2011.
Dr. Winful led a crippling strike by doctors in the public service insisting that;
“The single spine salary seems to have brought everybody up whilst the doctor remains static relative to each other. There have been serious distortions in the relativities of remunerations and that is our bone of contention”.
