The Association of Ghanaian Medical Doctors (AGMED) has noted with grave concern the ongoing strike declared by the Executives of the GMA and wish to state that the issues being cited are legitimate and requires urgent attention.
However the Association of Ghanaian Medical Doctors (AGMED) is of the opinion that the declaration of strike by the executives as a means to solving the problem is inappropriate. As doctors, any action we take should lead to the advancement and improvement of the Health status of Ghanaians especially the poor and vulnerable.
We therefore call on Ghanaian Doctors to resist the temptation of sectarian influence but rather bring pressure to bear on the executives to demonstrate their efficacy by adopting legal processes to address the concerns of Doctors.
We also call on FWSC to act expeditiously to adhere to and implement the schedule of payment as determined by the NLC. Efforts should also be intensified to resolve the problem of conversion difference and pension difficulties.
We wish to call on all Doctors to disregard the strike action and work in the interest of mother Ghana and our respected clients.
