Source: GNA - Even though doctors in various government hospitals across the country have abandoned their duty due to the ongoing strike to demand better condition of service, medical doctors working at Tarkwa Modern Hospital are at post.
As at 11.15 pm on Tuesday, when Ghana News Agency visited the Out Patient Department (OPD) there were empty chairs with few patients around but the doctors were in their consulting rooms attending to sick patients who have travelled from Tarkwa and beyond to seek medical attention.
A staff at the hospital who spoke to GNA on condition of anonymity confirmed that there are doctors at the specialised departments of the hospital.
However, at the old Tarkwa Government Hospital physician assistants and nurses were attending to patients.
The doctors were at the maternity block and the other wards ensuring that patients admitted receive quality healthcare.
A lot of people visit private health facilities to seek healthcare during such striking period by public sector medical doctors but as at 9:00 pm the OPD of the Pentecost hospital was not filled with patients as it used to be.
