Govt Hospitals Granted Power To Do Individual Recruitment: The Director General of the Ghana Health Service (GHS) Dr Nsiah Asare has stated that government has agreed not to directly post health workers to health facilities in the country.
According to him, the various regional and district hospitals, based on GHS’ staffing norms, will be given recruitment quotas to “advertise and manage their recruitment process.”
Dr Asare who was speaking at the graduation ceremony of some 56 newly trained doctors at the University Of Cape Coast (UCC) stressed that “health workers who have been granted financial clearance and wish to work with Ghana Health Service (GHS) will not be posted anymore.”
“Every health professional will compete for the job in the district that needs them and this is starting this year. So I want to repeat Ghana Health Service will no longer post health workers from the headquarters.
“I’ll not sit in my office and send people to the regions where they don’t know,” affirmed Dr Asare.
