C/R: Patients stranded at Assin Fosu Polyclinic as nurses embark on strike

Patients at the Assin Fosu Polyclinic in the Assin Fosu Municipality of the Central Region are currently stranded following a sit-down strike by nurses and other medical staff.

The strike is a result of the shortage of doctors at the polyclinic.

According to some nurses interviewed by Kasapa news, the polyclinic has been operating with only one doctor for the past 7 years, and in the absence of the doctor, the nurses are forced to handle all patient care, which is affecting the quality of healthcare delivery.

The nurses are also concerned about their working conditions and have vowed to continue the strike until their demands are met.

Meanwhile, some of the stranded patients in an interview shared their ordeal saying both nurses and other health workers are not ready to attend to them.

Some of the patients had to travel long distance to seek medical attention at different Districts.

The patients are appealing to the authorities to as much as possible address the concerns of the health workers.
