According to him, the exercise is aimed at weeding out more unqualified people who practiced as medical doctors in the country.

“By July this year, we would have introduced practitioner stamps so when you go into an institution and you are examined and given a prescription, a stamp will be affixed on your transcription form. This is something that we are doing,” he revealed.

He indicated that the Ghana Health Service and the Health Facilities Regulatory Agency would be made to put in efforts to help rid the system of unqualified doctors by having all health facilities display a proof of sanction as required by the Health Facilities Regulatory Agency Act 829.

The Council’s decision comes on the heels of a middle aged man who was arrested last week by a combined team with the Madina police for operating a medical facility illegally for 20 years.
