The Ministry of Health has commended the exemplary conduct of Dr. Abbas Adam, a neuro-surgeon, who returned to Ghana after his specialised training in Germany to take up a post at the Tamale Teaching Hospital.
Apart from taking up the position, Dr Adam also brought with him medical equipment worth about GH¢800,000 to upgrade the new neuro-surgical ward of the Tamale Teaching Hospital and to make it functional to save lives of many ill and injured people in need of cranial surgery.
"The Ministry is particularly proud of Dr. Abbas Adam for choosing to return to his country and hometown Tamale to contribute his quota to quality health delivery not only in Tamale and in Northern Ghana but to the country as a whole," the Ministry said in a statement signed by Mr. Dan Osman Mwin, the Public Relations Officer.
The statement urged all specialist medical professionals in foreign
countries and those at home to emulate the exemplary conduct of Dr. Adam and return home or accept posting to any part of the country where their services are needed most.
