Members of the Ghana Association of Certified Registered Anaesthetists will from today, Thursday, 11 April 2019 not attend to OPD cases as they begin a partial withdrawal of services in hospitals across the country.

The Certified Registered Anaesthetists (CRA) are accusing the Doctor Anaesthetists of hiding behind the Medical and Dental Council Ghana to change their name from CRA to Physician Assistant-Anaesthetists.

The CRAs intend to escalate their action to a total withdrawal of all services from 16 April 2019 should their name be changed.

In a statement, the aggrieved anaesthetists said their members should be engaged in any attempts to amend the Health Professions Regulatory Bodies Act 853, Act 2013.

They are also calling for a separate council and want CRAs to be appointed in management team of hospitals.

Below is the full statement:
