* Specialist doctors in Sri Lanka state hospitals to also be employed in private hospitals
Fri, Dec 14, 2012, 12:49 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 14, Colombo: The Chairman of Government Medical Officers' Association (GMOA) Dr. Anuruddha Padeniya says the Health Ministry has agreed to a plan of the union to release specialist doctors of the government hospitals to provide their services at private hospitals.

GMOA has proposed this move to the Ministry pointing out that such methodology is in practice in countries like Singapore and Australia where state specialist doctors are also employed one or two days per week in private hospitals.

The union has protested the practice of private hospitals employing specialist doctors, especially from India, without proper qualifications.

The doctors' union says that 184 such under-qualified doctors are employed in private hospitals in Sri Lanka.

GMOA has demanded the government to streamline the employment of doctors in private hospitals, Dr. Padeniya said.
