Meanwhile, patients who turned up at the Tamale Teaching Hospital (TTH) for medical care on Wednesday were turned away because of a strike by doctors and other health professionals at the facility in solidarity with the CEO.

Not even emergency cases were attended to and many patients, who were unaware of the strike, were left stranded at the Out-Patient Department (OPD).

The hospital staff attended to only patients on admission.

The strike was declared last Tuesday.
