Striking doctors run parallel OPDs in Punjab

Chandigarh, July 15

On the call of the Joint Government Doctors Coordination Committee, medical and veterinary doctors from all over Punjab today ran parallel OPDs on their respective hospital premises and expressed displeasure over the government’s evasive policy on the non-practising allowance (NPA) issue.

The parallel OPDs were run free of cost and the cost of medicines for treatment was borne by doctors.

Earlier, the doctors had boycotted all routine services, including OPDs, for three days. The coordination committee had decided to run parallel OPDs from the July 15 to 17 to avoid inconvenience to people. — TNS
