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.

He has explained that a large number of radiologists, medical laboratory technologists, occupational therapists and pharmacists were still waiting for employment after passing out in 2010.

He has said the JCPSM is to hold a discussion on the matter with the Health Ministry.

According to Epa, the Association would commence an agitation campaign if next week's discussions with the Health Ministry fails to yield positive results.
