State doctors announce 24 hour strike at hospitals’ A&E units on July 9

State doctors said on Wednesday they had decided on dynamic measures to protest conditions at public hospitals, beginning with a 24 hour strike at accident and emergency units on July 9.

The Cyprus News Agency said that the Health Minister has been briefed and is expected to launch consultations.

Sotiris Koumas, who heads the state doctors union Pasyki, said that a general assembly had discussed the situation at the state hospitals and particularly in the A&E units and authorised the board to take dynamic action.

As a first step, as the problem is particularly acute at the A&E units, doctors there will stage a 24 hour strike on July 9, he said.

“The employer has been officially informed today and it appears that an effort will be made for consultations to find a solution,” he added.

Devil, your comment is quite right.These state doctors in A&E seem to have scant regard for their patients. If they are threatening a 24hr strike
they deserve to be struck off the medical register. They are only threatening strike action to make the Govt back down so they can get their own way.

Have I missed something , they are trying to improve conditions in the Hospitals, not asking for a pay rise, good luck to them.

WHL, that maybe so. But in what way are they improving the condition of their patients by leaving then to go on strike for 24 hrs?
