Ghana Agrees to Export Trained Nurses to UK For Financial Benefits

The Ghanaian government and the British government will soon reach a bilateral agreement to send nurses with Ghanaian training to the UK in exchange for financial benefits, according to Health Minister Kwaku Agyemang Manu.

This will be similar to an existing agreement with Barbados, where he claimed Ghanaian nurses thrive, according to Mr. Agyemang Manu. On Monday, December 5, during the discussion of the 2023 Budget on the House Floor, the politician for Dormaa Central made this public.

“We are engaging with the government of the United Kingdom, and we are just about to sign a memorandum of the agreement after cabinet approval to begin to send nurses for training and work there and come back home after three years.

“Ghana will benefit from the little money the UK government will pass on. For every single nurse that goes away, when we finish the agreement, we will likely get over 1000 pounds to come and support the health system in Ghana. ”

In March, Barbados welcomed 200 additional Ghanaian nurses to help with the island nation’s workforce requirements. The Prime Minister of Barbados, Mia Motley, thanked the administration for providing assistance to her nation’s health sector in a speech.

A contract for the hiring of nurses from Ghana was signed by Barbados and Ghana in 2019. Over 100 Ghanaian nurses were initially hired as a result of the arrangement, which was signed at the Jubilee House when Mia Mottley paid a courtesy call on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during her official visit to Ghana.

Concerns had been raised about the relocation because it had been believed that the nurses may have been better integrated into Ghana’s Health Service.
