The management of the Axim Hospital in the Western Region has banned political parties from campaigning for votes at the facility, as the December 7 elections draws near.
It cautioned staff of the hospital to desist from political activities and instead concentrate on their mandate of providing the public with health care.
The Hospital Administrator, Nana Ntim Agyei, in an interview with The Ghanaian Times, at Axim, said that management of the hospital had cautioned staff to desist from active political party activities at the hospital, to enable them to focus on their core mandate of providing health care to the people.
He said the authorities of the hospital had issued a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) asking staff to eschew partisan politics, and to refrain from using political party colours or paraphernalia while on duty.
Nana Agyei said the MoU indicates that “As qualified health care providers, you need to rise above partisan politics and offer services to your clients. You are obliged to offer good services to the people of the country.
He cautioned the workers not to deny any person health care because of his or her political affiliation and asked the staff to comply with the MoU.
