The Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) has decided to launch 24 hours of island-wide work stoppage starting from today 8.00 am to tomorrow at 8.00 am, GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said.

“The strike will be staged with regard to several issues, mainly over the failure to legalise the minimum standards of medical education and amending of the service minute for doctors,” addressing a news briefing, Dr. Aluthge said.

However, he said they had decided to attend to emergency services at all hospitals during the time of the strike.

“The strike action will not be in effect at all maternity hospitals, children's hospitals, Cancer Hospital – Maharagama, renal treatment centres and armed forces' hospitals,” he said. (Sheain Fernandopulle)

    Then all GMOA doctors should be re-examined, if they meet these minimum requirements.

    All what doctors do is to prescribe medicines according to the very instructions given to them from the pharmaceutical companies. This MBBS is a bullshit that is created with different letters to make it look like a double degree. They have fooled the world for too long as “experts”.

    This terrorist trade union political Ex Co should be imprisoned for jealously trying to deny practice to our citizen doctors trained at least for 5 years in medicine, falsely calling them substandard on bygone O/L A/L. They receive payment for drugs prescribed and agent fees for foreign training. Mafia head wants SAITM erased for court case.

    Allow nurses to treat patients. What doctors do is not science but art.

    They should be fired and better doctors should be brought down from India who will surely cost less. And they should close down all medical faculties till doctors start to behave.
