The striking nurses of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital have indicated that they will not return to work even though the Health Ministry has provided some medications and money to the hospital.

A nurse and a member of the hospital’s communication team Emmanuel Febiri explained that at a meeting with the National Labour Commission they agreed on some items to be provided by the Ministry before they return to work.

“At the Labour Commission, there was a roadmap. The Health Ministry agreed to give us two month supply of medications and logistics and they will add the money. Not until those things we agreed on at the National Labour Commission come we are not returning to work.”
