Piecemeal actions will not solve problems at Korle-Bu- Dr. Sore

No matter the number of times the Chief Executive of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital is changed, current problems at the facility would not be solved, Former Director General of the Ghana Health Service, has indicated.

According to Dr Elias Sore, overhauling the entire system at the hospital is the surest way of addressing its challenges.

“The whole system needs to be changed” he told Joy News on Thursday.

There have been agitations for the dismissal of the Chief Executive officer of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Gilbert Buckle. Both the Senior Staff Association and nurses at the country’s largest referral centre, among other challenges, have complained about the lack of basic logistics to work with at the facility. They blame the CEO for some of the challenges.

They are worried if the CEO is not removed the facility would collapse. This would not be the first time a top management member has been dismissed following staff agitation.

“It is sad that we keep on changing people at the top,” and yet the problems are not solved, Dr. Sore noted, adding that “most people put there are very good people.”

The way forward, he suggested, is for the teaching hospital to get a blueprint document stating “where we want to go and how we will get there…it is critical”.

He is therefore charging the Health Minister to constitute competent people to come out with a document on how the facility should be managed; else “we will not succeed”.
