"I am sure I will come back if I need to come down and see my parents. But if you are asking if I intend to come back and work in Ghana, that’s impossible. Let’s be frank," he said.

Comparing how life is like in the U.K. to how he managed to get by in Ghana, the gentleman who had practiced back home for eight years indicated that he currently has everything he needs to work comfortably.

"This is a very good place and I will recommend every Ghanaian nurse to follow in my footsteps. There is a vast difference between the conditions of service here [in UK] and in Ghana. We have everything we need to work with. I don’t have to think of what to eat at work," he indicated.
