Video: Patients stranded at KATH as Doctors’ strike begins to bite

Patients who visited the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital (KATH) in the Ashanti Regional Capital, Kumasi, were left to their fate as doctors in the health institution protest what they described as forceful eviction from their homes.

OTEC News’ Nana Akwasi Acheamfpong who visited the facility reports that doctors were seen in the hospital premises but they were not attending to patients

The industrial action begun on Wednesday March 13, 2024.

Doctors at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital say they will be on an indefinite strike over what leadership describes as harassment and persistent orders to move out of their Danyame residences in Kumasi.

The leadership of the Association has stated that its members are facing eviction from their bungalows, which have allegedly been sold.

The doctors in a press release said they will remain on strike until alternative accommodation has been provided for them

Meanwhile some patients who had traveled from far and near to receive treatment expressed worry over the industrial action.

They have thus called on authorities to as a matter of urgency fix the problem to ensure doctors return back to consulting rooms.
