The Ghana Association of Biomedical Laboratory Scientists (GABMLS) has served notice of a strike on August 22, following government’s inability to implement the National Health Laboratory policy as a matter of urgency.

According to the laboratory scientists, the health ministry has been lackadaisical in the implementation of the policy which is meant to raise the quality of laboratory science practice nationwide.

A statement signed by the President of GABMLS, Ignatius Awinibuno, accused the Health Ministry of disregarding their needs by refusing to show up at a planned meeting which was to address the stalled implementation of the policy.

“The Minister of Health is not interested in improving and strengthening medical laboratory services for better quality health care in the country,” the statement said.

“We therefore call on all our membership across the country to withdraw their services at the various facilities starting from August 22, 2016 until you are otherwise advised,” it added.
