GRNMA awards loyalty, commitment to service


Members of the Ghana Registered Nurses and Midwives Association (GRNMA), Akatsi Chapter, have been urged to continue providing quality healthcare services to the public. 

Mr. Emmanuel C.K. Todzoh, the Chairman of the Akatsi Chapter, made the appeal during a dinner and awards night to reward deserving members and other workers of the health sector for their meritorious service.

It was also to climax the activities of the GRNMA Week celebration in the municipality and saw a total 45 members and partners receiving various awards.

It was on the theme: “Nurses and Midwives, A voice to lead in the vision for a transformed healthcare in a Post-Covid 19 world.”

The awards included Clinical Excellence  Award, Long Service and Loyalty Award, Association Interest Award, Outstanding Ward Leadership Award, Nurse Excellence Award, GRNMA Ultimate Recognition Award, Citation of Excellence Awards, Executive Excellence Award, Association Martyrs Award, and Excellence in Nurse Leadership Award.

Mr Todzoh commended the award winners for their sterling performances and relentless efforts in contributing to the quality healthcare in the municipality.

He said the Association recognised staff inspiration and motivation as key to improving commitment and performance, hence the decision to award hardworking and deserving actors in appreciation of their contribution to improved service delivery.

Mr Todzoh urged them to serve as role models to their colleagues as well as the young ones in the health sector.

That notwithstanding, Mr Todzoh said health workers needed more aid to help in the efficient and effective healthcare delivery.

Dr Karikari Bonsu, the Medical Superintendent of the Akatsi Municipal Hospital, who chaired the event, commended the executives for organising the event to motivate the staff and those going on retirement.

He congratulated all award winners and expressed the hope that it would go a long way to improve service delivery in the area.

A Citation of Excellence Award went to Dr Karikari Bonsu for his commitment and dedication to serve humanity.
