By: Isuru Parakrama

Colombo (LNW): The Government Medical Officers’ Association (GMOA) has organised a 24-hour strike action from 8 am tomorrow (08), revealed Union Press Secretary Dr. Chamil Weerasinghe.

Accordingly, the strike action will continue till 8 am on Thursday (09).

The move comes in in objection to the government’s new tax policy and the state’s failure to address the ongoing medicine shortage in the country, involving both state and private hospital services where members of the GMOA will withdraw from their duties during the strike action, Dr. Weerasinghe said.

Essential medical services, such as emergency, kidney and children services, however, will go on unhindered.
