NO fewer than 600 health workers of Nigeria’s foremost tertiary health institution, the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan, have resigned in the last one year.

Stonix News gathered that no fewer than 15 nurses, doctors and pharmacists, among others, exit UCH on a weekly basis.

The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of UCH, Prof. Abiodun Otegbayo, confirmed the resignations on Tuesday.

He spoke at a news conference marking the 65th Founder’s Day celebration of UCH in Ibadan.

“Every week, I signed resignation letters of 15 health workers at the institution, who are mostly clinicians, that is, nurses, doctors and pharmacists, among others,” the CMD noted.

He called for the removal of bottlenecks in replacing workforce due to mass exodus of health workers.
