The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) warned stern trade union action tomorrow onwards if Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne appoints Prof. Colvin Gunaratne as the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) Chairman violating the Medical Ordinance.

GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge told the Daily Mirror that the GMOA would resort to an indefinite strike without prior notice if the minister assigns the Prof. Gunaratne without considering GMOA recommendations.  

Sri Lanka Medical Council’s (SLMC) former Chairman Prof. Carlo Fonseka’s term of service came to an end on June 30 after serving five and half years. (Thilanka Kanakarathna)

    We are blessed to have the world's most sickening Doctors association

    If we do not defeat medical mafia, this country would not be able to go forward. They use the power of bargain for each and every issue they do not like covering behind the innocent patients life. This terrorism is worse than LTTE.

    SO WHAT ? One supports one view and what if the other supports the opposite ?

    Where in the world does an 85 year old continue to hold office? even in the private sector do you get a chairman of a company / Bank / or any other Institution, of that age? Truly the wonder of Asia !

    Even Carlo was supporting SAITM during MRs Regime

    GMOA must state why Prof. Colvin Gunaratne is unsuitable without holding the health service to ramson. Enough is enough, some strong measures must be taken against this terrorist outfit.

    PLEASE DON'T Monday, 10 July 2017 09:10 AM

    " Declare the Medical services as "Essential Services" -- PLEASE DO NOT - you are making matters easy for them to abort their "demands" (for which now, they have no way out to save face)- LET THEM STEW IN THEIR OWN JUICE - and work with their tail between their legs !

    Why can't we take stern action against GMOA for going on strike and depriving us of our FR of getting free treatment at Government Hospitals?

    Bugs Bunny Monday, 10 July 2017 08:10 AM

    But, he is always doing private practice, NO!!?

    varunadhar Monday, 10 July 2017 07:32 AM

    Has this so called "GMOA" become a "supra decision making body" in deciding the destiny of this nation? This influence should end now.....

    Gerard Sunday, 09 July 2017 01:06 PM

    dear minister please dont allow the GMOA to run the health ministry

    Derick Monday, 10 July 2017 06:05 AM

    This Docs Association is a menace to country like Degu. Need to eradicate once and for all

    Very soon the stinking GMOA will dictate terms the President & PM via DM Android App

    Mavan Sunday, 09 July 2017 02:16 PM

    Prof Colvin is a wrong headed man. He is fully supporting SAITM. This is a biggest victory for SAITM. Government knows Prof Colvin is SAITM supporter.

    shabir Sunday, 09 July 2017 02:07 PM

    Dear President My3, Declare the Medical services as "Essential Services" as did by Mr. Philix Dias Bandaranayake and say "they will lose the jobs" if they do not come to work. This is the only way out.

    Why GMOA doesnt go to the Court if the Health Minister violated the Medical Ordinance via DM Android App

    Jamalji Sunday, 09 July 2017 01:56 PM

    Govt.should not pay salaries of doctors during the month they were on strike. Salary of the month should be paid next month provided they work. Govt. should totally abolish Private Practice.

    Dogs are barking all the time. Please take the cane

    channa Sunday, 09 July 2017 01:39 PM

    Please appoint Prof. Padeniya

    Rohantha Sunday, 09 July 2017 01:19 PM

    Government should act as a Government.

    Nostradamus Sunday, 09 July 2017 01:09 PM

    This is pure terror. The Government has to ban this GMOA. Its a terrorist organization. via DM Android App
