Feb 02, Colombo: Supplementary medical professionals of Sri Lanka have accused the Health Ministry of failing to grant jobs to a large number of professionals who have completed their degrees in 2010.

The Joint Council of Professions Supplementary to Medicine (JCPSM) has said the Ministry has failed to grant employment to over 600 supplementary medical professionals who have completed the degrees.

Head of the JCPSM Dharmakeerthi Epa has said the Ministry has failed to grant jobs to these professionals despite continuous assurances that they would be provided with jobs since 2010.
