The Ministry of Health has cautioned its staff reportedly charging rotation nurses and other cadre health workers fees for biometric registration to cease the illegal activity before it takes legal actions against them.
The Ministry’s warning follows complaints from the 2019 rotation nurses and from nurses being recruited into the government sector through the Health Ministry’s recruitment portal.
According to MOH, some biometric registration officers are allegedly demanding GHC50.00 for the on-going process and some of the facility-based Human Resource Officers are also allegedly demanding Two Hundred Ghana Cedis (GHC200.00) before the processes are carried out.
It however in a statement copied to Georgeweb.org has advised those involved in the unlawful act to cease the demand for fees as it is fraudulent and illegal.
The Ministry furthered that it will investigate the allegations levelled against the aforementioned staff and bring those found culpable to book.
