Unposted Allied Health Professionals numbering about 495 will today, Monday, May 8, picket at the Ministry of Health (MoH) to register their displeasure at the Ministry’s inability to employ them.
This follows the financial clearance given the Coalition of unemployed bonded Diploma Nurses by the Finance ministry after their sustained agitation.
According to the Allied health professionals, who were left out of the recent employment clearance, “As citizens and not spectators, we can only fight for our share in the employment of health professionals after realizing we were not part of the just-released financial clearance for over 4,800 clinicians with whom we completed and/or served with in the same year frame.
“We are aware the government is in a hurry. We, therefore, don’t want our issue to be an oversight, hence we are employing the now efficacious way – picketing – to register our displeasure and demand our right.”
