The doctor gave the breakdown of the 91 unpaid trainees as follows: 30 House Officers are stationed with the 37 Military Hospital, 23 are with the Cape Coast government hospital, 7 more at Tema Government hospital, 11 with the  Brong Ahafo government hospital, 4 each with the Volta regional hospital and Police Hospital and one each with LEKMA and Holy Family Hospitals.

He believes one of the reasons they have not been paid is that they have not put sufficient pressure on the authorities partly because they are scattered across the country.

Nana Kissi Atefah explained that 94 House Officers stationed at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in the Ashanti region were paid because by their sheer numbers, the net effect of laying down their tools was huge.

But for his colleagues, a hospital may not suffer greatly if some 7 doctors embark on a strike, he argued.
