It has been 10 days of the strike of Gujarat Medical Teacher’s Association. The condition of patients is worsening with each passing day. Many major operations are delayed. However, Superintendent of Civil Hospital claims that efforts are done to make sure that the patients do not suffer,
As a result of strike thousands of patients are suffering since last three days. Because of this they do not get sufficient treatment. They have to wait in long queue for their turn. On the other hand medical professors claims that despite of three days Government is not paying any attention towards them. Since last two and a half years they have appealed to Government more than 200 times alongwith memorandum. Now these doctors threatened eye donation as their next step if government will not listen to their demands. But patients suffers a lot because of this. Normally 120-125 operation are done in a day in Civil Hospital and because of the strike only 50 operations were done on 22nd March, 37 operations on 23rd March and only 16 operations were done on the third day of strike. Patients who cannot afford to attain treatment in private hospitals are suffering because of this strike.
As professors of Medical colleges are on strike patients are in poor condition. 2500 medical professors are on indefinite strike. The junior doctors cannot take major decisions in case of emergency without senior doctors. Majority of the operations were cancelled due to the strike. Resident and corporation doctors are not joining this strike as to look after the patients but they have threatened that if the demands will not fulfilled than even they will join the strike. First junior doctors and now senior doctors, whoever goes on strike, it is the patients who have to pay at the end.
