The Board Chairman of the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital, Anthony Mawuli Saller, has expressed confidence in the work of the Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, Dr. Gilbert Buckle, despite calls by staff to have him removed.

The Senior Staff Association, last week, passed a vote of no confidence in the Chief Executive and Board Chairman.

The members of the association have accused the two of mismanaging the hospital’s internally generated funds and paying what they termed needless judgement debts.

The Korle Bu Nurses and Midwives Association has subsequently written a letter to the health ministry and have copied the president, demanding the resignation of the CEO of the hospital.

However, the Board Chair, Mr. Saller has told Accra-based Citi FM, the calls to have the CEO resign are baseless.

“…We have confidence in the Chief Executive, he is doing a wonderful job and since he has been there, we’ve done a lot,” he said.

He added that aggrieved staff had refused to meet with the Board for the issues to be solved.

“We invited KOSSA to an emergency board meeting and we wanted them to come and formally present their grievances to the board, they declined.” When you have issues and your employer invites you to come and let’s discuss it and you still continue running to the press and issuing statements… how are the issues going to be addressed?”, he asked.

Mr. Saller further rejected allegations by staff that their welfare needs have been neglected.

“We instituted conditions of service, part of health benefits package and Mr Palm, the KOSSA president, is a member is of that board… so how can he go on air and start making comments that there is no benefits or works and staff. We have also instituted a provident fund for the works to benefit from,”  he said.

Meanwhile, management of the hospital will issue a press statement to address the complaints of the staff.
