Staff of Accra Psychiatric Hospital, including nurses and doctors will not be paid their salaries for the month of February, following some software problems with validation at the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.

Confirming the news to Accra-based Citi FM, the Medical Director of the Accra Psychiatric Hospital, Dr. Pinaman Appau said “We have been told that we will not receive our salaries for the month of February, but in March, we would get a double salary, that is, the February and March salaries.”

According to him, the software used for validating and processing salaries have been faulty since June 2015.

The hospital, he said, has since been compelled to notify the Controller and Accountant General’s Department to validate their payroll every month, but they failed to do so this month.

“Unfortunately, they explained that since we couldn’t do the validation, we should have reported to them and since we didn’t report this time, we didn’t get our salaries. Unfortunately, they are saying that they cannot run a supplementary payroll and therefore what they can do is to give us our salaries in March,” Dr. Pinaman Appau added.

He however said management has put in place measures to cushion staff during this period, hoping that such a situation does not occur again.
