Despite a nationwide strike by medical laboratory scientists that has disrupted healthcare services across the country, the Nima Polyclinic in Accra remains fully operational. The strike, which started this week, has left many hospitals and clinics without essential diagnostic services, causing inconvenience for numerous patients.

At the Nima Polyclinic, lab professionals have continued to work, ensuring the clinic remains a crucial resource for the community. This has led to a surge in lab requests, with patients from other areas coming to Nima for their medical needs.

The Medical Director of the Polyclinic stated that while the increased workload has put pressure on the staff, they are managing to meet the demand. “Our team is dedicated to serving the community, and we are doing everything we can to ensure that patients receive the care they need,” she said.

Patients at the clinic have expressed their gratitude. Amina, a resident of Accra, said, “I came here because the lab at my usual hospital is closed due to the strike. I’m thankful that the Nima Polyclinic is still open and able to help.”

The strike is part of a protest by medical laboratory scientists demanding better working conditions and pay. Although negotiations with the government are ongoing, no resolution has been reached yet.

Meanwhile, the Nima Polyclinic continues to provide essential medical services, offering hope to many patients. The situation is still evolving, and many hope for a quick resolution so that all healthcare facilities can resume normal operations.
