Lira Regional Referral Hospital hopes to recruit 49 more new staff in the financial year 2016/2017 to reduce on the current 119 vacant positions.

The hospital's Human Resources Officer Ms Lorna Asima said the recruitment shall be made possible after a wage enhancement by 500 million shillings.

Most of the vacancies to be filled, she said, are in the administration and technical departments although the hospital needs six more medical

officers, ten more consultants and four senior consultants.

Asima said although lack of wages caused the shortage of staff, it has been difficult to attract some of the senior personnel like the senior consultants who do not prefer to work in upcountry hospitals.

She said their biggest challenge has been the workload that the current staff on the ground have to handle with the overwhelming clients that need effective service delivery.

A report released by the Auditor General early this week showed that government institutions have over 68,000 vacant positions yet to be filled.
