Dr Anaba removed as Medical Director of Ridge Hospital

The Ministry of Health has removed Dr Thomas Anaba as the Medical Director of the newly refurbished Greater Accra Regional Hospital [Ridge Hospital}.

He has been asked to go back to the University of Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale, his original place of work before taking up the new post at Ridge.

But Dr Anaba thinks that his removal is not appropriate and has taken issues with it.

He argues he went through a competitive tender to secure his new appointment and cannot be transferred.

He has subsequently written to the Minister of Health. Mr Kwaku Agyemang- Manu to rescind his decision

Dr Anaba argued that his appointment was supposed to last till 2020 and had the option to re-apply.

"I saw an advert requesting for people to manage the Ridge Hospital and I applied", he said and added that as a consultant for the Ministry of Health since 2012 he was qualified for the job.
