Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang Manu, is worried about the increasing number of lawsuits against health professionals in their line of work.
According to him, the legal cases pending since he took office have doubled.
“What I am seeing of late in the ministry are issues of litigations for the past four weeks or so, almost every week we get at least one letter from the Attorney General’s Office.
“Somebody has sued, somebody with problems with care, service delivery. And they want us to come with information for them to go to court with,” he said on Tuesday, April 18, 2023.
Speaking at the 2023 Ghana Health Services Senior Management Meeting, he stressed that lawsuits have almost become a trend which forces him to assume health workers have lost their work value.
“I’ve been with you for the past six years. Earlier when I came in those things were not happening that much.
“But now it’s becoming very common. So what is it? deliberate efforts to try to go to court, get somebody to take us to court Or we have forgotten what we were trained to do in a more efficient manner,” he bemoaned.
However, the Minster charged Senior Managers to come up with strategic plans to address the phenomenon.
“Since you are senior managers on the care side of what we do in health. I think I will throw this challenge on you and in your strategic meetings, you did discuss how this problems of court matter can be resolved,” he added.
