JOHESU Demands Sanction Of Medical Directors Over Failure To Implement Circular On Consultant Pharmacy

The Joint Health Sector Workers Union, JOHESU, wants the Head of Civil Service of the Federation to sanction Chief Medical Directors, CMDs of tertiary hospitals and Medical Directors, MDs of Federal Health Institutions for failing to implement the circular on Consultant Pharmacy Cadre in the health sector.

In a letter addressed to the Head of Civil Service of the Federation, JOHESU said that the refusal of the CMDs and MDs to implement the circular from the Head of Civil Service and the Ministry of Health amounts to “gross misconduct” which should not go unpunished.

The letter signed by the Acting National Secretary of the Union, Comrade M O Ajorutu notes that the actions of the CMDs and MDs contravenes Public Service Rule 030301.

The letter calls for the immediate implementation of circular with reference number FMH/FDS/CSPTH/1/95 of August 2, 2021 which clarifies the mode of applicability and implementation.

It says that CMDs and MDs are employees of the Federal Government, and not employers of labour neither are they regulatory bodies or autonomous organs of government and therefore should not be allowed to truncate the rights of other employees.
