Video: Strike at Lady Ridgeway hospital today as well
The staff of Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital in Borella are staging a strike since this morning.
The staff staged a protest yesterday due to the Health Ministry taking measures to remove Doctor Ratnasiri Hewage who was serving as the Director of the hospital for 3 years and appointing him to a different position.
The Lady Ridgeway Children’s Hospital staff, currently on strike, told our news team that they are demanding to change Doctor Hewage’s appointment as the Deputy Director and to reinstate him as the Director of the Hospital.
Responding to our news team’s inquiry, Deputy Minister of Health Lalith Dissanayake said the Director’s position change was made in accordance with the General Transfer Policy.
