Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has expressed concerns over the increasing rate of negligence and other unprofessional conducts by some healthcare workers in the country.

He said this after recognizing the essential service health workers are providing, while addressing members of the Medical and Dental Council in Accra on Monday August 29 on the occasion of the Council’s 50th Anniversary Celebration and 2022 Conference.

In a Facebook post after the event, Dr Bawumia said “the services health workers are providing our country are invaluable, and I commended the Council for providing the needed regulatory framework over the years to ensure professional and safe medical and dental practice in Ghana.

“While commending them, I, however, expressed Government’s concern over increasing rate of negligence and other unprofessional conducts by some healthcare workers.

“As the 2022 Conference seeks to, among other things, take stock of the Council’s operations, I urged them to suggest solutions for the effective management of such practitioners for the public good.”

He added “I also reiterated our Government’s commitment to continuing its vision of expanding access to healthcare through infrastructure development and pro-poor policies, such as expansion of health facilities, strengthening the NHIS, reviving the Ghana Ambulance Service through One Constituency One Ambulance, introduction of medical drone delivery service to remote parts of the country, and many more.”
