The island-wide strike launched by state hospital pharmacists has lead to huge disruption in issuing prescribed medicine to patients.

Our correspondents stated that patients, especially those seeking treatment at routine clinics have been severely inconvenienced.

The president of the state pharmacists union, Priyankara Perera told our news team that the strike has been launched in protest of the health ministry’s decision to recruit more pharmacists, in spite of there being  no vacancies available.

a senior officer attached to the health ministry told our news team that they expect to discuss the issue with the minister this afternoon.

He also said that inhouse patients at state hospitals  have not been affected by the ongoing strike.
