Government doctors to go on strike over evening OP
- | Friday | 13th April, 2018
The evening OP is a sensitive issue as many doctors have private practice at that time. KGMOA, the union of doctors in health service, announced an indefinite strike starting on Friday. THIRUVANANTHAPURAM : The government decision to start evening OPs in community health centres and taluk/district hospitals hasn’t gone down well with doctors working in government service. They wanted doctors to stay back and conduct an OP in the evening.KGMOA condemned the move as it felt there was not enough infrastructure or manpower to extend OP functioning during evenings. A group, allegedly CPM workers, threatened doctors that they wouldn’t be allowed to go out at 2pm, which is the existing practice.
