* Controversial circular perturbs Sri Lanka's health sector
Thu, Dec 12, 2013, 11:16 am SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Dec 12, Colombo: Sri Lanka's health sector is in chaos due to a circular to be issued by the Ministry of Health in near future on performing surgeries in hospitals.

The new circular is expected to amend a previous circular that made the presence of surgeons compulsory when the surgeries are performed by the junior medical officers.

The old circular dated October 05 1993 was amended and sent to all heads of hospitals. According to it, the surgeon may be summoned to the theater at any emergency.

Health sources say that under the amendment, the presence of the surgeon is not compulsory.

The amendment is criticized by the patients' rights organizations as well as by the doctors.
