12,000 nurses to be employed in 2017 - Gov't

Government spokesperson Dr Omane Boamah made this known when he addressed thousands of National Democratic Congress supporters during the launch of the party's manifesto on Saturday at the Sunyani Coronation Park in the Brong Ahafo Region.

 

According to him, the governing NDC will build 35 new polyclinics across the country in the second term of President John Mahama.

He said by the end of 2017, the 1000 bed Military hospital in Afari in the Ashanti region would have been completed, including the Ridge Hospital, Police Hospital, University of Ghana Teaching Hospital and the District hospitals for Madina and Kwabenya.

“…But the future is far more important than the past and the present. And that’s why President Mahama is saying that over the next four years, he is going to build 35 polyclinics across the country.”

“And all these Hospital projects will add 6,000 additional hospital beds to our stock and so if you are a nurse, whether private or government trained and you are looking for a job, the opportunities are right here; because assuming two nurses will even be assigned to each of the 6,000 beds, that’s 12,000 nurses to be recruited.”
