There’re Competent Doctors In Ghana To Attend To Bawumia – GMA

The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has uncomfortably responded to the claims that there are no competent medical doctors in Ghana to attend to the Vice president, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s illness.

The association has indicated that there are competent doctors in the country who are very assiduous to their work and could have taken care of the second gentleman of the land if offered the opportunity.

“As far as I know, doctors in Ghana are very very competent to the extent that when you interact with those outside the country some of our members are far better” Vice President of the association, Dr. Frank Serebour told Abusua Fm in Kumasi on Monday.

The comment of the Vice President of the association follows numerous claims Dr. Bawumia was flown to the United Kingdom due to the fact that doctors in the country do not have the capacity to take care of his ailment.

As such situations have become a norm, as noted by Frank Srebour, Mr. Kinsley Aboagye-Gyadu, the Deputy Health minister indicated earlier that Dr. Bawumia will receive “better health care” in the UK than Ghana.

Dr. Serebour has, however, debunked the assertion by saying there are competent health workers in the country adding that politicians must be blamed as they have always “paid lips services to health facilities in the country”

“If leaders of the country patronize health facilities in the country, it will add up to our ability to work to achieve the expected levels”. He said.

Sharing his experience as a medical doctor, GMA Vice President sadly revealed how on several instances patients die under his care due to lack of equipment to perform his duty of saving lives.

According to the GMA, doctors must not be blamed so much on the issue of competency.
