Private Health Clinics in the Capital on Strike

Over 2,600 private health clinics including nursing homes in the national capital went on a daylong strike on Wednesday// to protest against the proposed sealing of their establishments.

"We are in a dilemma and our future is uncertain. Once the sealing operations resumes, we will face the axe. The government is not only pushing doctors against the wall but also forcing the public to suffer," said K.K. Kapoor, president of the Delhi Medical Association.

"Over 2,600 such health care centres including 640 registered ones are on a daylong strike. Nearly 30,000 doctors are participating in the protest today," Kapoor told IANS.

As per the Supreme Court directive, all commercial establishments including those of doctors running in residential areas will be sealed starting Nov 1.

He, however, said to help the public, they have not closed the emergency services in their hospitals.

"We know the condition of patients and hence decided against a complete closure of institutions. Out patient departments (OPDs) are closed for a day across the capital," he said urging the government not to force them for a 'maha bandh' (mass strike).

Kapoor said the capital has 2.1 beds per 1,000 people as against the desired mark of five beds.

"If all our hospitals are closed then the ratio will certainly fall below one bed per thousand people."

Wednesday was the last day of the three-day traders' strike in the capital to protest against the sealing drive.
