The Ghana Medical Association (GMA) has declared a nationwide strike effective Thursday July 30.

Their move follows the inability of government to resolve their grievances over their working conditions.

A meeting between government and the leadership of the Ghana Medical Association (GMA) Wednesday ended in a deadlock.

The doctors exited the almost four-hour meeting and declared the industrial action. They have also threatened to begin a mass resignation in the coming days.

The public sector physicians have been at loggerheads with government over their service conditions for several years now.

The doctors gave a June ending ultimatum to withdraw their services entirely if government failed to finalise a document that will serve as their conditions of service, but after negotiations began, they agreed to extend their deadline by a month which expired Tuesday July 28.

Meanwhile, President John Mahama said the demands by the GMA will adversely affect the Single Spine pay policy.

He said he will not go beyond the budget allocation in dealing with the Ghana Medical Association's demand for conditions of service.

Should government heed to the demands by the doctors?
