Health Authorities asked to ensure happiness of patients
Dormaa-Ahenkro (B/A) July 21, GNA – The Municipal NCCE Director, Mr Amankwaa Boateng, the Dormaa Municipal Office of the National Commission for Civic Education, (NCCE) has appealed to the management of the hospitals to implement programmes that would promote harmony between their staff and their patients.
“The fact that you deal directly with the health of the people would be appreciated if you cherish values in and outside the scope of your profession …”, he said.
Mr Boateng was speaking at a forum for staff of the Dormaa Presbyterian Hospital at which they discussed the duties of the Worker, as contained in Section 11 of Act 651, (2003).
The objective was to explain the content of the Act towards the promotion of enhanced industrial harmony between management and subordinates on the one hand and among the staff and their clients, in general.
Mr Boateng underscored that the free-flow of information and the respect for fellow humans were critical and the Act was founded on that.
He stressed that they should not under any circumstance relegate the virtues of hard work and respect for human dignity to the background.
The Hospital's General Manager, Mr Fred Effah-Yeboah, commended the NCCE for educating the public on their rights and responsibilities.
He praised the level of understanding and unity which existed among the staff of the hospital, adding, “the situation has resulted in the tremendous enhancement of the hospital's corporate image as well as their professional output over the past years.”
Mr. Effah-Yeboah gave the assurance that the Hospital would always endeavour to pursue programmes that would protect its image and also attract more professionals to its fold.
He appealed to the public to always contact the public affairs department of the Hospital on issues of conflict before resorting to the media as any hasty conclusions could damage the fortunes of the Hospital.
Mr. Effah-Yeboah appealed through the Municipal Assembly to the Government to adequately resource the NCCE to enable the Commission to reach every corner with their messages on national orientation.
