End impasse: CSFK
GK NEWS NETWORK
Srinagar, July 19: The Civil Society Forum Kashmir (CSFK) has urged the SKIMS doctors, management and the police to sort out issues between them in public interest.
In a statement, CSFK General Secretary Umar Tramboo said patient care has bore the brunt because of the strike and the general public has been left in the lurch. Complete chaos and frustration is prevailing in the Valley’s lone tertiary care hospital owing to the doctors’ strike, he said.
The Forum appealed to doctors and the authorities to sort out the issue immediately so that patients don’t suffer any more. The Forum further stated that strike culture should be abolished by doctors as there are other ways of solving the problems which do not hamper patient care.
“It is complete injustice to patients and general public that they are being made to suffer and pay for something which they were never part of. The security setup in all the major hospitals lacks proper training on dealing with patients. Before putting them on duty in hospitals security personnel should be sensitized and briefed about how to deal with the patients,” it said.
“The alleged incident of security personnel beating doctors is highly condemnable and should not be repeated in future. However the management has taken a prompt action by attaching the security personnel, but unfortunately strike is still continuing in the hospital. CSFK members further appeal to the doctors to end the strike immediately,” the Forum said.
