The Ministry of Health has asked management of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital to internally handle case involving the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the hospital, Dr. Gilbert Buckle and the Senior Staff Association of the hospital.

Staff of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital have demanded the resignation of the Hospital's CEO, Dr. Gilbert Buckle.

This was after members of the Senior Staff Association passed a vote of no confidence in the Chief Executive and Board Chairman on Wednesday.

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

Speaking to Accra-based Citi FM, the Public Relations Officer of the Health Ministry, Tony Goodman, said the ministry would not intervene in the matter unless it degenerates to affect provision of health care.

“For now, we will do internal talks. Korle Bu has a PRO, they have a Director of Communications. They have all the compliments. Korle Bu is semi autonomous so when it comes these things, we leave them. It is only when it has an effect on the health sector that we come in,” he said.

“Until a few days that we see that it is not what we expected, and it is generating into something else, then we will  come in. But we expect them to handle the whole issue and bring into conclusion the whole matter. Otherwise, we will be micro managing our own institution,” Tony Goodman added.

The CEO of the hospital assumed office in July, 2014 following staff agitation against then acting CEO, Rev. Albert Okpoti Botwe, and then Board Chair Eddie Annan over similar concerns.
