The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) today suspended a strike launched on Thursday following talks with President Maithripala Sirisena.
Earlier, Health Ministry sources said that government doctors who were on protest last week on the Malabe SAITM campus issue were to be dealt with by the Ministry of Health.
Health Minister Dr. Rajitha Senaratne had been discussing steps which need to be taken against the doctors who had failed to fulfill their duties to the public.
There was a huge public outcry last week as the strike by the doctors led to patients being stranded.
Some government doctors who took part in the strike were found to be practicing at private clinics.
One such doctor was captured by state television and he ran out of the private medical centre when he was captured on video engaging in private practice. (Colombo Gazette)
