Doctors observe strike in Kup hospitals
Patient care affected
Kupwara, Dec 28: The patient care in all the hospitals in this frontier district was adversely affected on Tuesday due to the doctors’ strike against the alleged government inaction in the recent manhandling of a medico at Sogam hospital.
Although the emergency services functioned properly, OPD was badly affected, forcing hundreds of patients of remote areas to return home without being treated.
The doctors and paramedical staff staged a sit in at district hospital Kupwara and raised slogans against the alleged high handedness of SOG personnel who had ‘coerced’ Dr Sameer ‘to change the medical report’ of a patient, who was a policeman.
Later the doctors marched towards the office of District Development Commissioners and submitted a memorandum to visiting CAPD Minister, Qamar Ali Akhoon.
Akhoon assured the doctors that the case would be investigated and if found guilty action against the policemen would be taken.
After the minister’s assurance, DAK district president Dr Mussarat said “We have called off our strike after the assurances from minister and DC Kupwara. If they failed to fulfill their promise, we will go for indefinite valley wide strike.”
