The National Executive Council of the Ghana Medical association (GMA) has directed its members to withdraw all emergency services starting Monday.
In a brief statement issued and signed by General Secretary of the GMA, Dr Frank Serebour, all doctors are from Monday, the 22nd of April expected to now attend to in-patients until their discharge.
The statement read:
"I am directed by the National Executive Council of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) to remind all doctors of the second phase of the roadmap as put up on the 14th of April 2013 by the GMA.
"Per this roadmap, all doctors are directed that, from Monday April 22,2013, all doctors should withdraw emergency services and attend to only in-patients till their discharge.
"This has become necessary because the issues of the conversion difference and reduced pensions have not been resolved as at now".
The strike is set to enter day 15 on Monday. It is by far the longest strike by any labour union this year.
