GMOA requests members to cancel their leave

28 May 2017 11:29 pm - 31     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) today requested their members to cancel their leave during the disaster situation and to offer their assistance as best they could.

Following a discussion held with the Health Ministry, the GMOA said that they had requested their members to collaborate with the Health Ministry officials in the relief effort to provide assistance to the victims of this disaster.

GMOA Assistant Secretary Dr. Nalinda Herath said that they had agreed to conduct health camps in all the flood affected areas of the country.“Over 100 GMOA members had volunteered to treat the injured in flood affected areas. Our teams have already started treating those affected by the flooding in the Kalutara district and several teams would also be dispatched to Galle, Matara and the Hambantota districts,” he said.

    To all the GMOA sickos. Now is the best time to call an all island strike and see what happens. It will be prudent to order a few hundreds of coffins first.

    What? you can go on strike now and show your colors because you don't care for the patients

    Bala Monday, 29 May 2017 11:36 AM

    GMOA is not an organisation with power of its own outside health ministry orders. If they refuse to cooperate they can be punished - doctors in government service are under health ministry not under GMOA fancies. This is bullshit to score points.

    This is the best time for you to strike.

    All ready government made this request from all the government servants. Are Doctors not part of the government service ? Why trade union request from its' members to cancel the leave ? GMOA tried to get marks even from national disaster like politicians. .

    This is something prudent to get back their eroded reputation among the affected people in the past and this is the need of the hour as well

    siva Tuesday, 30 May 2017 10:38 AM

    The advise should have been confidential - It would have given it a professional Meaning- Each and every doctor knows the Hypocrites oath which binds him/her and for sure they will abide by it

    Wedige Monday, 29 May 2017 08:44 AM

    No, thnak you sir. It may not easy to recover what you all done past few months (like Blue Colour guys).

    Raj Monday, 29 May 2017 08:46 AM

    You need them till you become sick. Appreciate when some does something good. You don't throw mud at someone who volunteers to help.

    MyLanka Monday, 29 May 2017 08:53 AM

    Wonder what has caused the sudden pangs of conscience? Trying to regain their lost popularity may be?

    Why not go on strike again. Never a better time to cause maximum human suffering that you want to inflict.

    Renu Monday, 29 May 2017 09:20 AM

    These beggars can go on strike now as patients are unable to come to Hospitals now. Your services are not required

    The GMOA take advantage of any catastrophe.

    De Silva Monday, 29 May 2017 09:53 AM

    Govt. has already cancelled public service leave. No need for the GMOA to do that

    this statement very clearly says this leave is fake leave for fake reasons. via DM Android App

    At last they have come from their deep slumber. It is the Health Department that has the power to cancel leave of the staff, not the GMOA. They are afraid that the Indian doctors will steal the show. Too late you job for the salary you are paid. Don't make it a PINPADY.

    Zulu Monday, 29 May 2017 10:33 AM

    You can get SAITM doctors to do everything FREE OF CHARGE!

    you can continue with your usual weekly strikes holding an umbrella, the Indian
