The Association expressed its frustration during its post-2021 Annual conference over the weekend where it complained that the issue is affecting its members and the smooth delivery of service.
The Association is also not enthused about the poor treatment meted out to Physician Assistants by the Medical and Dental Council and the high level of unemployment within its fold.
Briefing the press in Kumasi, President of the Association, Emmanuel Yaw Appiah, said if the government does not respond in time, its industrial action will severely affect the delivery of health care in the country.

The association also demanded the provision of financial clearance for the 800 physician assistants who are home and yet to be employed.
