The Finance Ministry has granted financial clearance to the Health Ministry for the recruitment of 8,634 health care personnel to provide health care at varying levels across the country.

Of the number cleared, 5,400 are nursing assistants who have been passed by the Nursing and Midwifery council.

Another 1,538 made up of 1,500 emergency medical technicians (EMTs), and 38 other professionals, have been cleared for the Ambulance Service.

The effective dates of appointment are: November 1, 2016 as well as February 1 and March 1, 2017.

A letter from the Finance Ministry, signed by Finance Minister Seth Terkper, notified the Health Ministry to ensure that the prospective members of staff get their documents processed in time.

“The Ministry of Health is to ensure that the engaged staff have their documents processed in time and placed in the mechanised payroll early enough to enable the Controller and Accountant General’s Department effect payment of their salaries.”

The Finance Ministry, however, noted that “the above number of 8,634 should be deducted from their (Health Ministry’s) 2017 quota for recruitment and replacement.”

“By a copy of this letter, the Controller and Accountant General is requested to effect the payment of their salaries and make appropriate deductions of Social Security and income Tax to Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) and the Domestic Tax Division of Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) effectively,” the letter added.
