CHENNAI: Thousands of doctors working in government hospitals in Tamil Nadu have threatened to strike work, including patient care, by September if the government does not increase pay packages, the joint action committee of the Government Doctors’ Association has said.

President of the association Dr K Senthil said doctors in government run hospitals get a salary that is lower than lecturers or professors in arts/science colleges, although government doctors work for at least 50 hours a week compared to 32 working hours of teaching faculty.

The doctors’ body has started a major three week ‘awareness drive’ among patients and members of the public about the service conditions and pay of the doctors.

Doctors from across the state will stage a dharna in front of the district collectorate on August 20, 2018, and from September 1, 2018, the association has decided to boycott all government meetings, classes for medicos, audits and inspections by MCI.
