Anaesthetists across the country have completely withdrawn their services after a partial strike last week.
The more than 900 Anaesthetists in public health facilities across the country are protesting what they say is the failure of the Medical and Dental Council to acknowledge them as Certified Registered Anesthetists.
Members of the group are currently referred to as Physician Assistants Anaesthesia, despite performing the same function as Doctor Anaesthetists.
This, they say is affecting their career progression and management opportunities for its members. With this strike, persons who require surgery in public health facilities may have to postpone it as there may be no one to evaluate, monitor and supervise their care. This includes pregnant women and persons who may need emergency surgeries.
According to Vice President of the Ghana Association of Certified Registered Anaesthetists, Barnes Ayisi the strike is in full force until their demands are met.
He said they are expecting to meet officials of the Ministry of Health tomorrow on the matter.
