Mombasa Health CeC Hazel Koitaba has announced that medics in Mombasa County will resume work on Wednesday.
In a press briefing on Tuesday after meeting representatives of nurses, clinical officers and doctors, Koitaba stated that the county has sorted out issues that paralysed provision of medical services in the county.
"This afternoon, we have had a very engaging meeting with various unions within the county government of Mombasa and the health faculty. We have met both the clinicians union and nurses union also the doctors union. I am happy to report that we have renewed our commitment to ensure that we are able to provide efficient and effective health services to the residents of Mombasa County," Koitaba said.
The good news was confirmed by Dr Niko Gichana, the Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union (KMPDU) Coast region branch secretary.
He urged those who had salaries in their accounts to resume duty and promised the rest that they will get their money by close of business Wednesday.
"We have had various meetings since last week and we know that this issue of salaries has been brought up because of the national equitable share formula not being agreed on. However, our health staff have continued to provide service until this date."
From this afternoon's meeting, we have committed that by tomorrow close of business we will be at hundred per cent. That means that all our health facilities will be operating at hundred per cent," Koitaba concluded.
