The Deputy Director General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS), Dr George Amofa, says doctors who refuse posting to the rural areas would be sanctioned.

The Director said this in Bolgatanga on Tuesday during the Upper East Region Health Sector Performance Review Meeting for 2008. Dr Amofa said the sanctions could include forfeiture of their salaries


He directed the Regional Director of Health Services to compile the names of doctors who had been assigned but had refused to do so.

He said the Health Directorate would not allow the situation where doctors opt for the urban areas such as the Ashanti, Brong Ahafo and Greater Accra Regions at the expense of other areas, where their service were in high demand.

He stated that the posting Committee and Management of the Human Resource Development of the GHS have earmarked strategies towards ensuring that doctors report at assigned areas.

Dr Amofa said plans were far advanced to bond student’s doctors and nurses so that as soon as they complete their courses they would be assigned directly to work.

He appealed to opinion leaders in the region to play a role by ensuring that there was peace in the area to enable health workers to undertake their duties effectively, saying that, without peace no health activity can take place.

He appealed to the leadership of the Regional Directorate of Health to nurture team building to enable them to achieve their vision.

He urged the participants to take the meeting seriously and also share experiences of their areas.

The Upper East Regional Director of Health Services, Dr Koku Awoonor-Williams said the Region lacked health service personnel of all grades and said each of the five district hospitals in the region, was manned by a single doctor, apart from the Cuban Medical Brigade.
