Government will soon institute electronic placement for Nurses and other paramedical staff to stop the human interface associated with the deployment of medical students.

Former Director-General of the Ghana Health Service and Special advisor to the President on Health issues, Dr Nsiah Asare, who announced this at the matriculation and Congregation of Family Health Hospital gave the assurance that more Nurses including; those from the Private Training schools would be employed and urged the graduates to put whatever they learnt into practice by providing quality health care to all Ghanaians irrespective of their geographical locations.

He urged  Medical students and Nurses to accept postings to the rural areas in order to gain maximum experience as the concentration in major cities and urban areas would not offer them challenges to take up higher responsibilities.

He charged the students to act with professionalism and enthusiasm in order to make a change in the lives of people you meet in the line of your duties.

He advised the graduands against seeking greener pasture outside the country, but rather urged them to stay back and contribute their quota towards the growth and development of the country.

President and Founder of Family Health Hospital, Professor Yao Kwawukume said the College had introduced a Dialysis centre, Cardio-Thoracic Centre with well-equipped Intensive Care Unit, a larger Neo-Natal Intensive Unit and a larger and well-equipped emergency unit to facilitate the learning of students and take care of their numerous patients.

He said Hostel facilities were also expanded with the installation of a water filtration system to avoid water shortage in school and reclaimed parts of the sea for recreational purposes.

He said the College has also upgraded the Nursing and Midwifery school to run a degree programme and initiated measures to launch an endowment fund for brilliant, but needy students as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility.

Mr Simon Sackitey who received 11 out of the 12 available awards was named the overall best student of the BSc Science 2019 Special Awards.
