There is increasing deterioration of delivery of health services in Mulago Hospital as exhibited in this study and the health sector in general. In this study, the relationships among organizational controls, teamwork, OCB, decision-making, and performance management were investigated in Mulago Hospital. The study used a survey design and the respondents Questionnaires and interview guides were the research instruments used to collect data from the respondents. Measurements of the study variables were the already established, published, reviewed and validated by the previous scholars. The instruments were also tested for validity and reliability and the indexes were above 0.7 thus the question used was proved appropriate for this study. It was established that; Increasing loss of morale and teamwork amongst the health workers has created a workforce that acts not from duty – consciousness, but out of desperation to survive, without any due regard to the patients’ health. It is becoming more difficult to achieve national health targets and hospital objectives as most health workers are more preoccupied with their meager pay as well as covering what cannot be covered financially at their workplaces rather than the performance required of them to achieve pre-set targets and objectives thus affecting the proper attendance to patients. Data was collected using questionnaires and interview guides, and analyzed for the degree of variances between and within the variables and its impact on the development of human resources and performance management within Mulago hospital. The results show that there is strong correlation between teamwork and performance management and none between OCB and decision-making. These results are discussed in light of the prevailing health service delivery system in Uganda. Recommendations and areas for further research are also explored.
