Press Release issued by the Ghana Physician Assistants Association

Sequel to the Joint Press Release issued by the Ghana Physician Assistants Association, Ghana
Association of Certified Registered Anaesthetists and the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives
Association as a result of the fallouts from the ongoing Conditions of Service negotiations with
the Employer, the National Executive Council of the Ghana Physician Assistants Association hereby
outline the following roadmap:

  1. The Employer is hereby given the opportunity to address the concerns raised by the team during
    the negotiations before Monday, 21st September 2020 to forestall any industrial action because the
    the current stance of the Employer is detrimental to the collective economic interest of all Physician
    Assistants, Certified Registered Anaesthetists, Nurses, and Midwives in Ghana.
  2. The Employer is also hereby notified that ALL Physician Assistants, together with Certified Registered Anaesthetists, Nurses and Midwives, will withdraw their services from Monday, September 21, 2020, if they (Employers) fail to address the concerns raised by our team.
  3. Effective Monday, 21st September 2020, all Physician Assistants in ALL Government and CHAG health institutions nationwide are to withdraw their services from 8:00am if no other counter directive to this has been issued. The general public is advised to seek healthcare from other health facilities across the country while we embark on this crucial exercise to demand better Conditions of Service for our members.
