Resident doctors strike update against National Medical Commission Bill
Resident doctors strike update: Services at private hospitals in India are likely to be hit on Tuesday as the Indian Medical Association has called for suspending routine services for 12 hours in protest against the National Medical Commission Bill, which seeks to replace Medical Council of India with a new body. The bill is likely to be debated in Parliament on Tuesday. OPDs of private hospitals may be hit but emergency and critical services will be open, officials said.
The bill also proposes to allow alternative medicine graduates to practise allopathy after completing a “bridge course”. In response to the doctor’s strike, the Union health ministry said it has written to all Centre-run hospitals such as Safdarjung, Ram Manohar Lohia, AIIMS and Lady Hardinge Medical College, to make necessary arrangements to ensure that patient care and emergency services are run smoothly.
