Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa has instructed officials to proceed with the transfers of medical officers of grade in accordance with the procedure followed so far.
He noted that the crisis, pointed out by the Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA), arises due to the change in the transfer procedures at the discretion of certain officials.
The matter has been discussed with the top officials of the Health Ministry, as well as the members of the GMOA, at a meeting held today (04).
Speaking to the meeting, the Prime Minister urged the stakeholders not to embarrass the government by following political ideologies and work together with the trade unions in accordance with the Establishment Code.
Contributing to the discussion, the GMOA noted that the medical administration should not be divided into two sections namely senior and junior and should be kept in a single sample.
