new Delhi: The resident doctors of AIIMS, who are staging a strike against the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill, announced the closure of the strike on Sunday after meeting Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan. These doctors will return to work from Monday. Harsh Vardhan tweeted, "I met the delegation of Resident Doctors Association of AIIMS and Safdarjung and removed their misconceptions about the MMC Bill. I am confident that the doctors will end the strike and return to work in the interest of the patients." Resident doctors were on strike for four days against the MMC Bill.
Returning to AIIMS doctor's work will prove to be a boon for patients. There is a possibility of a huge crowd in the OPD of the hospital on Monday. The Resident Doctors Association of Safdarjung has not yet clarified that they will end the strike or continue. Until the news was written, the meeting was going on in the Indian Medical Association.
Opposed to IMA
The Indian Medical Association (IMA) protested against the passage of the National Medical Commission (NMC) Bill in Lok Sabha on Monday. The association has said that it will close the non-essential services for 24 hours in the country. During this period, performance and hunger strike will be conducted in all the states. The IMA has also asked for the boycott of classes showing solidarity with medical students.
The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), including the Federation of Resident Doctors Association (FODA) and the Resident Doctors Association (RDA), asked its members to wear black badges. A statement by the RDA said that if the amendment is not made, it will not only reduce the standards of medical education, but also reduce the healthcare services.
Non-urgent services, including OPD, will be closed from 6 am on Thursday to 6 a.m. on Thursday. While emergency, accident, ICU and related services will work normally.
