140 healthcare workers resigned from Bulawayo’s central hospitals
More than 140 healthcare workers have resigned from Bulawayo’s central hospitals, due to a government’s reluctance to address their plight.
Most of these healthcare workers are said to be trekking to the UK which recently embarked on massive recruitment in the face of Covid-19.
A total of 52 registered general nurses and two doctors resigned at the United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) this year.
The public institution has 659 nurses and 171 doctors to cater for all the hospitals within UBH.
Mpilo Central Hospital lost 77 nurses and seven doctors, a development which authorities say has crippled operations.
The 1 000-bed central hospital has 535 nurses and 196 doctors.
Both institutions serve patients from the southern region which includes Bulawayo, Midlands, Masvingo, Matabeleland North and South provinces.
