The recent promotion exercise has indeed been long overdue. The improved salaries will now surely make positions in MOH (Ministry of Health) more attractive. Well at least, better than those under the purview of the MOHE (Ministry of Higher Education), specifically the university hospital doctors.
MOHE has yet to announce an improved salary scale for its doctors. Rumours are that it will happen and it should counter that announced by MOH. This strategy is probably wise if they are to get more doctors to join the university faculty. Otherwise, it will only be foolish for doctors to leave the lucrative positions within MOH.
We will wait and see…..
