The Upper East Regional Health Directorate has issued a 31st December deadline to 25 doctors, who are said to have ignored postings to the region.
Though there have been assurances of incentives, these doctors – made up of 24 medical officers and a dentist – have refused to report to duty.
It is unclear what the reason may be but our correspondent said an appeal by Dr Kofi Issah to get them to post has gone unheeded.
TV3’s Tanko Rabiu Mohammed said among these medical officers are some who even hail from the region.
The doctors are likely to forfeit their salaries if they report after the deadline as the Directorate has made it clear financial clearance expires then.
