The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) announced an Islandwide 24 hour token strike starting from 8 a.m. tomorrow, following an ExCo decision made a short while ago.
Informing the decision made at a press briefing, GMOA officials said the Government had failed to provide a positive response on the SAITM issue.
They also said investigations had not been done over the recent attack that taken place at the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) and on the University students.
However, the GMOA said emergency services, maternity hospitals, children hospitals, cancer hospitals, tri forces hospitals and the renal treatment units would be free from the strike.(Thilanka Kanakarathna)

These GMOA leaders must be given the Gota treatment. Assign FM Sarath Fonseka to handle this bad situation. via DM Android App

This type of highly irresponsible and high handed action taken by these so called professionals should be deplored in the strongest terms. They are going against all the professional ethics and taking the poor patients for ransom. Disgusting.

GMOA's actions are Civil Disobedience and Neo-Terrorism.
