Court orders reinstatement of Korle Bu Pharmacy boss

An Accra Human Rights Court has ordered the reinstatement of the Director of Pharmacy at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

The Korle Bu Hospital in June sacked four top officials including the Director of Pharmacy after a forensic audit into the operations of the Pharmacy Department of the Hospital.

In a statement issued by the Board of the Hospital, the Director of the Pharmacy Elizabeth Bruce, the Manager, Eric Kwaku Kyei, its Accountant, Augustina Dankyi and a Stores Assistant were all sacked.

They had been on interdiction since January 2014.

Shortly after her interdiction, Elizabeth Bruce proceeded to court to challenge the decision.

Describing her interdiction as “unlawful”, Bruce instituted civil action on 10th April, 2015 against the management of the hospital. It was to get the court to direct that she resumes her official duties.

However, in a ruling Thursday, the court ordered that the hospital ensures that Madam Bruce resumes her position.

Management of Korle Bu Teaching Hospital has since withdrawn the dismissal letter served to the head of the pharmacy department.
