The National Labor Commission (NLC), is required to meet the administration of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH), the Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists (GALMS), and the Health Ministry one week from now.

The gathering will try to track down an agreeable answer for the stalemate over the presenting of two hematologists on the lab administration division of the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital.

The Laboratory Scientists have been on a plunk down strike for near seven days now, in challenge the choice.

Specialists have turned to other private research facilities to address the issues of patients who require such administrations.

In a meeting with Citi News, the Executive Secretary of NLC, Ofosu Asamoah, asked the individuals to continue work in front of the gathering.

“The Ministry of Health was taking care of it prior, so we were expecting that it would be settled at this point. Yet, the way things are, there is a requirement for us to step in. Meanwhile, we need them to suspend the strike,” he expressed.

Research center Scientists at KATH started a one-week plunk down strike a week ago to fight the posting of two clinical officials to the Laboratory Services Directorate of the emergency clinic.

Calls by the Ministry of Health and the executives of KATH for the researchers to continue work for exchange to start have yielded no outcomes.

In the interim, the Ghana Association of Medical Laboratory Scientists has reported that the strike would be heightened cross country from Wednesday, May 26, 2021.

Addressing Citi News, the National Public Relations Officer of the Association, Dennis Adu-Gyasi, said the choice was taken at a crisis meeting with its individuals.

“What’s going on at KATH is an insult on the act of clinical research facility science in Ghana. The initiative of Komfo Anokye isn’t prepared to yield to the solicitation of the researchers around there, and it is as yet forcing the clinical officials on the experts. We think it is a matter that should be taken up at the public level. We feel that if by Wednesday nothing occurs, we will take it [issue] up and heighten the modern activity on a public scale.”
