FG Scraps Salary For Medical House Officers And Other Health Interns by dokgen(m): 5:32am On Apr 24, 2021
In a shock move that has left the medical community in Nigeria dazed, nimedhealth.com.ng can authoritatively report that the federal government of Nigeria through the National Council of National of Establishment (NCE) has stopped the salaries of medical house officers, dental house officers, nurse interns, pharmacist interns, medical laboratory science interns and NYSC doctors.

This means, the salaries of all health interns in Nigeria health institutions including that of house job have been removed from the payroll of the federal civil service. In case you still don’t understand this piece of information, the federal government is saying housemanship (a paid mandatory one year service for fresh medical graduates) is now part of the continued training for doctors and other interns and therefore , they are no longer under any obligation to pay them salaries.

Before now, a house officer is on consolidated medical salary scale (CONMESS). With this decision, the federal government have removed house officers from the salary scale saying they will no longer pay HOs…

This information is contained in document dated 12th of April, 2021 and released by the National Council of Establishment (NCE is the highest decision making body in the civil service and duly signed by the head of civil service Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan….who is surprisingly a doctor that graduated as the best graduating dental student from the University of Ibadan in 1987.

Now, the government is saying housemanship and other health internships is a form of “studentship” and not supposed to be a paid job…

The Press Release:

“Head of Service of the Federation
HCSF/SPSO/ODD/NCE/CND. 100/S.10/11/112

12th April, 2021

INTERNSHIP PROGRAMME IN THE CIVIL/PUBLIC SERVICE

The National Council on Establishments (NCE) at its 42nd meeting held from 30th November 4th December, 2020 in lkeja, Lagos State reviewed the current status of internship programmes/housemanship/NYSC Doctors in the Service, and approved their removal from the
Schemes of Service as posts attracting grade levels in the salary structure.

The Council based its decision on the grounds that the period of these programmes/services form part of the trainings in their respective professions.

Interns shal, however, be considered for the payment of allowance to be determined by the National Salaries, Incomes and Wages Commission.

This approval will be reflected in subsequent edition of the Schemes of Service.

Signed

Dr. Folashade Yemi-Esan

Head of the Civil Service of the Federation”


This latest decision is not unrelated to the recent outcry, social media hashtags, and even open protests by house officers following the non- payment or half payment of their salaries after the centralisation by the medical and dental council of Nigeria (MDCN)…many health experts cited the the lack of cooperation of the hospital CMDs with the MDCN as the cause of the sour development. In the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital and Jos University Teaching Hospital for example, house officers and other interns carrying banners, took to the premises of the management of the hospital to protest their financial hardship as a result of non-payment of their salaries.

Now that the FG has banned house officers from earning salaries, what does the future hold for young medical graduates and also interns of other health professionals?

The people wey don too chop, wey you dey hate are the ones supporting the fragile health of your country from breaking down in shambles. If you think say e easy, run am go do medicine.



The quality of healthcare will decline steadily, because, nobody will do slave work for free, and the basic job of taking history and bedside assessment will suffer. Laboratory result collection and specimens submission too will suffer massively. Do you know the huge role NYSC doctors, cover, when you discourage them, with no salary, who will fill that vaccuum?


NO worry, when you get diarrhea, and nurse tell you say make you extract your own blood yourself, na when you go understand as e dey go. You should weep for the nigerian populace. There will be massice depopulatio and brain drain. prett soon.

well then.
It seems that going to medical school is no longer worth the risk..

Everybody will now want to be an engineer.

Hopefully this means they will no longer be used as houseboys and girls in teaching hospitals.

They will no longer do calls especially those 96hr straight calls.

This is all shades of bleeped up.

Dear prospsective jambites. Medicine is no longer worth its high cutoff mark. Go and do engineering and IT.

Housemanship is not studentship. How dumb are these elites?

Simple, interns do the bulk of the work in teaching hospitals. They do the stuff no one else wants to do. If they are not paid. Well.
The first person who sees rhe the sick person in a hospital is no longer being paid.

He or she is free to do anyhow with your body and say he/she is still a student

Afterall, they will work for free.

They should not do calls either. So if you are sick at night, Gobe!!

Lol, bro, Nigeria has one of the cheapest healthcare, it might not be efficient, but its not expensive. Put the blame on the govt. for the poor remuneration of the workers. Health is not about headache and agbo alone, what happens to the pregnant mother in labour, the children with pneumonia and meningitis.? Na agbo go cure them? the endless cases of malnutrition? or the massive trauma along express roads. The health system is shitty but about to be the real shit, if this policy is absolutely implemented

By the time an unpaid intern walks out on a sick person mid surgery because of other more important things than an unpaid job, your eye will clear.

what about the many more who have been saved.

If your saviors are not paid.

A lot of them will be forced to do other things to earn a living, for example, charge you extra for their services as a side deal.

It will start to happen.

During my internship, I worked 96 hour calls (4 days straight without sleep) Doing slave work in the name of caring for patients, being called at ridiculous hours because of an emergency.

I pulled through it with some kind of joy because i knew that at the end of the month, I would see that alert that i would use to take care of that and my family.

I bought my present laptop with that intern money. Put myself through NYSC when the money was almost non existent and was told to work a week straight for those bloody soldiers(i later told their CMD(a colonel) to give me a call allowance or Bleep himself) with that housejob money.

And Now, government wants to take that away from the future generations.

Imagine being treated in the hospital by someone without that insurance, without that reason to keep on going? You will be treated by people telling you to go and Bleep yourself.

Abeg make buhari go write waec, jamb, enter any nigerian unversutyity, study medicine, all the lab work. Studying from morning to night, except Sundays, do awoko reading, reading till early morning, the books upon books, calculation e.t c... Just may be he go get a little idea of schooling. Buhari u are WICKED. May Nigeria never ever have this set of despot rulers we currently have. The choice is for the people to make. Remove tribal affinity, religious similarities and put objectivity upfront before making d decisions. May nigerians never allow sentiment to decide who to vote, else 2023 will be worse.

This should be on the front page for those who are against brain drain of doctors to see.

This government is good at making unreasonable policies without knowing the implications.

The worst of it all is that the document was signed by a doctor who was paid salaries as a house officer

The licence of a doctor is same with that of a dentist and the salaries are the same in Nigeria.

The both professions are awarded "Dr" upon graduation by the Medical and Dental Council of Nigeria (MDCN).

So she signed the document to punish her junior colleagues?
