The industrial action initiated by the specialist doctors of the Cardiac and Thoracic Surgery Unit of the Teaching Hospital of Karapitiya continues to persist for the 3rd consecutive day.

Meanwhile a strike was initiated by the nurses of the unit as well. Treasurer of the Government Nursing Officers Association E A Jayasinghe reported to Hiru News that the second strike was initiated to protest a verbal assault on nurses by the specialist doctors.

Our correspondent reports that the execution of cardiac and thoracic surgery in the Teaching Hospital of Karapitiya has paused due to the strikes.
