Govt's future at stake if SAITM not abolished: GMOA

2 January 2018 07:10 pm - 9     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The GMOA today warned that the government's future was at stake if SAITM was not abolished as promised.

GMOA Assistant Secretary Naveen de Zoysa said they would resort to trade union action if the government attempted to use short cuts to register “bogus degree holders”.

He said the next week would be critical to the government and the ministers if they failed to keep their word and pointed out that if the government continues with its double standards the GMOA would resume its countrywide anti-SAITM fight.

Dr. De Zoysa said the government should abolish SAITM and then decide what is to be done with the students.

He said said some ministers with the help of some Deans of the medical faculties were attempting to politicise the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) but GMOA would not allow the minimum standards in the health service to be destroyed. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    My congratulations to GMOA and the like for fighting the rights of innocent patients to consult qualified doctors rather than doctors called persons who bought MBBS.

    This SAITM issue is a pain in the backside of the GMOA and the GMOA is a pain for the whole country, isn't it?

    There was a time when readers submitted tons and tons of negative comments against this bunch of 'andares'. Apparently, now they don't give a crap if these buggers exist or not.

    This issue is not about minimum standards in the health service but your standards. Already your standard is gone. RIP

    Please address the lack of doctors in rural hospitals. We need more doctors and they're not born they're made. And the making of them don't start or end at A/L exams.
