Balochistan doctors boycott OPDs


QUETTA: Doctors here Saturday boycotted Out Door Patient Departments (OPDs) and General Operation Theatres (OTs) of government-run hospitals.

The doctors are observing two-day strike on the call of Doctors Action Committee.

The patients hailing from far-flung areas suffered a lot due to the absence of doctors in OPDs. Indoor patients admitted to the hospitals also faced a lot of problems.

However, doctors discharged their duties in private hospitals and clinics.

The protesting doctors are that latest health facilities be provided to government-run hospitals, and their doctors are saved from attacks of patients and their attendants.
