To intensify agitation if demands are not accepted
The government doctors sported black armbands on Monday while attending patients as a mark of their protest against the government’s apathy vis-a-vis their demands. The President of Provincial Medical Health Services ( PMHS) Dr. D P Joshi said that all members of the association discharged their duties while wearing black armbands. He said that the doctors would continue to work wearing black armbands until the end of this week. “ On Sunday meetings of Garhwal and Kumaon division of PMHS would be organized at Srinagar and Haldwani respectively and in these meetings decision on future course of action would be taken,’’ he said.
The PMHS is demanding that the pending demand of uniform implementation of Dynamic Assured Career Progression (DACP) scheme should be accepted without any delay. The doctors want that the transfer order of the general secretary of PMHS should be revoked and meetings of Departmental Promotion Committee ( DPC) should be held two times a year. The PMHS is also demanding that vehicle allowance to the doctors should be given.
Private doctors to go on strike from December 25
Irked over the attitude of the State Government on not providing any concrete assurance on the Clinical Establishment Act, the doctors of private hospitals and clinics have decided to go on an indefinite strike from December 25.
The general secretary of the Uttarakhand chapter of Indian Medical Association (IMA), Dr D D Chaudhury said on Monday that the private medical practitioners have had some reservations on clinical establishment Act.
He said that the Chief Minister Trivendra Singh Rawat had assured the IMA of a solution being found to accommodate their grievances. “But nothing has happened despite a long time having elapsed since,” he lamented.
Dr Chaudhury further said that as per the IMA suggestion, a nursing homes Act should be implemented in the State in place of the clinical establishment. “IMA has prepared a draft and sent it to the health department. However, no step is being taken to implement the nursing home Act or make amendment in the clinical establishment Act. This is unfortunate and this non-challance on the part of the Government is forcing us to an indefinite strike from December 25,” he added. Read more posts…
