Resident doctors threaten to suspend all OPD Services at GMC from today


Resident Doctors Association (RDA) of Government Medical College and Hospital (GMC&H) Jammu here on Wednesday  threatened to suspend OPD Services on October 25 in phased manner over alleged “undemocratic action” of DC, Reasi against Dr Ashwani Bhagat Orthopaedic Surgeon working at district hospital, Reasi.

As per press information, the representatives of RDA said the suspension of OPD services will be followed by suspension all Operation Theater services on October 26 and also to close down all Emergency services on October 27 .

RDA representatives demanded suspension of DDC Reasi within 24 hours time limit.

They further said, “In what capacity, Dr Ashwani was illegally detained in police station for one hour on the direction of DDC Reasi. Doctors are working round the clock to provide quality healthcare services to the people of the state in spite of the fact that the infrastructure and working conditions are not as per the requirement.”

“This action of the DC has created disharmony and brought down morale of whole doctor community working across this trouble torn state,” they maintained and adding, “There shall be no compromise with dignity.”
