Nurses at the Agogo Presbyterian Hospital in Asante Akyem North district in the Ashanti Region have on Thursday, 24 September 2020 resumed work.
This follows the suspension of a strike action by the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) and its allied associations (Ghana Physician Assistants Association and Ghana Association of Certified Registered Anesthetics).
Some patients who had visited the hospital expressed relief with the resumption of the nurses.
One patient said: “I’m happy they have resumed work... we thank them for resuming work.”
A parent who had brought her child to the hospital also said: “I’m glad they resumed work because my child has a problem with his hand. They’ve always fixed a date for us to come, he’s coming for medications and I've been here more than 10 times.”
The Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA) and its allied associations (Ghana Physician Assistants Association and Ghana Association of Certified Registered Anesthetics) announced the suspension of its strike action effective Thursday, 24 September 2020.
The announcement was made at a press conference held by the GRANMA on Wednesday, 23 September 2020 in Accra.
