Source: myjoyonline. com - The Out Patient Department services at public hospitals across the country have been suspended due to a nationwide strike by nurses.

Some patients who visited the various hospitals for treatment on Thursday were unattended to and left to their fate.
The National executives of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association at the beginning of this month gave government and other stakeholders in the health sector an ultimatum to address issues confronting members, failing which they will withdraw their services.

Their series of actions began with the wearing of red bands from 1st to 6th November, followed by the withdrawal of all OPD services with attention to only emergency and maternity cases.

Joy News' Hasmin Muhammed reported on Thursday, November 10, that OPD services at the Tamale Teaching Hospital in the Northern region had been suspended.

"Patients came in their numbers to the hospital, hoping to be attended to but were told nurses are on strike and after hours of waiting, some visited private hospitals," he indicated.

"I came around 8am with my wife. She is to attend anti-natal and we were told to come with her folder so I came to the records office and we were told nurses are on strike," Muhammed Osman told Hasmin.

The situation was no different at the Okomfo Anokye Teaching Hospital, Manhyia District and Tafo Government Hospitals in the Ashanti region.

Mahmud Mohammed-Nurudeen reported that some doctors attended to some patients who had queued up at the hospitals but noted that the psychiatric department at the Tafo Government Hospital had been deserted.
