Patients were facing many problems due to inadequate number of doctors in wards as well as in OP. They condemned the strike of junior doctors and requested them to resume their duties. “It’s not appropriate thing for the junior doctors to go for strike whenever they wish in the public health sector. Going strike in health sector means playing with the lives of the innocent people,” felt a patient. The patient further blamed the government for ignoring the government hospitals, their development and welfare of doctors. Meanwhile, the leaders of junior doctors reasserted their decision of continuing the strike. They were disappointed as they did not receive any call from the government.
A senior doctor working at the Gandhi Hospital said, ”The impact of strike is there definitely. But we have made alternative arrangements to cope up with the situation.” Speaking on this ocassion Dr Vasantha, spokesperson of Gandhi told OP was recorded as 814, medico legal cases were recorded as 59 and non medico legal cases were 24.
Dr Ramdas, superintendent of Osmania Hospital told the activities in the hospital were being run smoothly though junior doctors boycotted their duties. He said by taking up alternative measures they could maintain the medical services to be continued without any obstructions.
