Doctors on strike at Kinniya base hospital

Aug 16, 2011 1:06:52 AM - muslimguardian.net

Services at the Kinniya base hospital came to a near standstill yesterday as the hospital staff launched a strike against alleged misconduct by the security forces personnel within the hospital premises. The Secretary of the Government Medical Officers Association Dr. Chandika Epitakaduwa speaking to Daily Mirror stated that “It isn’t a strike per se, but the Doctors are refraining from carrying out normal duties. They have decided to attend to only emergency situations due to the prevailing hostile environment” he said.
