Anaesthetists to strike effective Jan. 1

The Certified Registered Anaesthetists (CRAs) have said they cannot provide anaesthesia services across the country
effective 1st January, 2022.

A statement issued on Friday December 31 said this is because members do not hold license to practice.

The Ghana Association of Certified Registered Anaesthetists (GACRA) said they have not received any response to the requests in its letter dated 4th Dec, 2021.

“The GACRA submitted another letter in relation to the above subject matter on the 20th of December, 2021,
with a directive from the National Labour Commission (NLC) in letter dated the same day and also a directive from the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations (MELR), have all not received any attention.

“The inability of the CRAs to provide anaesthesia services is indefinite until a determination is made by the Ministry of Health.”
