Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has expressed the government’s concern over increasing rate of negligence and other unprofessional conducts by some healthcare workers in the country.

Addressing members of the Medical and Dental Council in Accra on the occasion of the Council's 50th Anniversary Celebration and 2022 Conference on Monday, 29 August 2022, Dr Bawumia urged the Council to suggest solutions for the effective management of such practitioners for the public good.

He also reiterated the government’s commitment to continuing its vision of expanding access to healthcare through infrastructure development and pro-poor policies, such as expansion of health facilities, strengthening the NHIS, reviving the Ghana Ambulance Service through One Constituency One Ambulance, introduction of medical drone delivery service to remote parts of the country, among others.

He noted that the services health workers are providing the country are invaluable and, thus, commended the Council for providing the needed regulatory framework over the years to ensure professional and safe medical and dental practice.
