The Ghana medical association has threatened to advice its member from working with Christian Health Associations of Ghana CHAG in the future.

"The GMA will not hesitate to bring its full force to bear on such institutions that perpetuate such inferior tactics on its members. The GMA may in future advice its members not to serve in such institutions if it becomes necessary."  A statement signed by the president and secretary of the GMA said.

This follows the release  of some 14 doctors on horsemanship at the Holy Family Catholic hospital at Techiman in the Brong Ahafo region to the Medical and dental council for reposting.

This was after the doctors declared their support for the GMA strike and subsequently failed to show up for work

 Doctors under in CHAG facilities by convention do not go on strike. It was their duty to put the patient frst as all cost.

 Executive Director of CHAG Peter Yeboah had told that the action of the hospital should not be viewed a punishment.

But the GMA said  it condemns  "the recent phenomenon where heads of training institutions at the least provocation threaten and or release house officers to the Medical and Dental Council for re-posting"

The association said such actions " amounts to intimidation and an infringement on the rights of house officers to participate in trade union activities, a right which is enshrined in the Labour Act 651."
