Private Doctors in Uttar Pradesh to Go on Strike Against ‘Harassment’ on May 8
Private doctors affiliated with the Uttar Pradesh chapter of Indian Medical Association (IMA), will conduct a statewide strike on May 8 to protest against the alleged harassment by the health department on several issues.

According to protesters, the strike is to push for effective implementation of the Medical Protection Act in the state and ensuring safety of doctors.

During the strike, the private healthcare establishments will not admit any new patients. The government hospitals and SN Medical College will, however, remain open.

Sudhir Dhakre, vice president of IMA, said that they will write a letter to the district chief medical officer intimating him of our strike. "We will also make own arrangements for the day. The doctors have become scapegoats for everyone; be it the administration or the health department who are imposing arbitrary rules on us, while failing in their duty to provide security to doctors. The issues have been simmering for a long time," he said.

The IMA officials further alleged that the CMO office is lax in performing its duties related to the Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques Act. "They are required to update doctors about changes in the norms and rules in the law, but that is not happening. They should conduct workshops and seminars for doctors as well," said Dhakre.

Protesters also said the decision to allow homoeopaths and other Ayush doctors to prescribe allopathic medicines are totally unjustifiable as they lack proper knowledge in this branch.
