Health Minister Calls Out GMOA: ‘Actions Of Some Doctors Unacceptable’

Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne, at an event at the Temple Trees yesterday, said the behavior some doctors was unacceptable.

He was referring to doctors of the Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA).

Minister Rajitha Senaratne said that the behavior of these doctors who had received free education was unacceptable.

“The GMOA always resorts to trade union action,” he alleged. “They hold strikes then they proclaim the strikes as successful. But all they are really doing is putting the lives of patients at risk.”

He said the GMOA should resort to trade union action only if talks fail, “but these trade unions start with trade union action,” he alleged.

He said the GMOA had no discipline, and was only intent on causing difficulty, working with agendas and trying to topple the government. “They will not be successful,” the Minister said.
