PHA PLEASED DOCTORS RETURNING TO WORK
The Public Hospitals Authority (PHA) is pleased to have been advised by the leadership of the Consultant Physicians Staff Association (CPSA) that their withdrawal of services has ended and that members of the Association have resumed their full duties effective immediately.
On Wednesday, the PHA and CPSA reached an agreement in principle regarding the financial clauses in the proposed industrial agreement. The CPSA agreed to the financial terms and considerations raised in yesterday’s meeting and settled to discuss remaining minor matters in future meetings.
The PHA anticipates that negotiations will further advance in good faith as both sides seek to fulfil our mandate of delivering quality healthcare to the Bahamian people.
Management wishes to thank the Executive Committees, Administrative Officers, Managers, Supervisors and staff at our institutions who worked diligently to minimize the impact of the industrial action on patient care. The PHA also wishes to thank the public for its patience during the past industrial action and apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
Members of the public are advised to pay attention to forthcoming community announcements from public hospital institutions with respect to the resumption of normal clinics and outpatient services.
