Marondera Hospital says the freezing of posts at the School of Nursing and School of Rehabilitation is compromising production of quality graduates.

Speaking during a graduation ceremony at the hospital, Marondera Hospital Medical Superintendent, Dr Celestino Dege said the schools of nursing, midwifery and rehabilitation have done well under difficult circumstances.

He added that the freezing of posts has resulted in the institution using depleted staff thereby compromising quality of graduands.

The Deputy Minister of Health and Child Care, Cde Aldrin Musiiwa said there is need to establish more posts for rehabilitation technicians beyond district hospitals.

Mashonaland East Minister of State for Provincial Affairs, Rtd Brigadier General Ambrose Mutinhiri urged the graduands to go and ensure that they help communities in accessing quality health care.

A total of 83 general nurses, 23 midwives and 40 rehabilitation technicians graduated at the ceremony.
