Shimla. The doctors working in the hospitals of Himachal Pradesh have opened a front against the government. In Himachal’s largest hospital IGMC Shimla, doctors have started working with black ribbons as a protest from Friday.

According to the information, the doctors of the State Association of Medical and Dental Teachers (IGMC) have been working since Friday wearing black badges. Also, on October 4, all the doctors will go on mass leave, due to which the patients may have to face problems. The doctors are demanding the release of academic allowance.

Semdikot President Dr. Rajesh Sood told that the government has increased the academic allowance of specialist doctors from Rs.7500 to Rs.18000. They welcome this, but doctors working in medical colleges have not yet been given this allowance. The government had formed a committee, but this committee has not yet made any recommendation for this academic allowance. In such a situation, about 250 doctors will go on mass leave, which will be the responsibility of the government.

It is to be noted that patients are referred from all over the state in IGMC. In such a situation, patients will not be able to get treatment due to the doctor going on mass leave and there will be problems in the wards as well. Vice President of State Association of Medical and Dental College Teachers (Semdikot), Dr. Ramlal, General Secretary Dr. GK Verma, Co-Secretary Dr. Vinay Soumya said that emergency services would continue.

IGMC has 3000 OPD every day

IGMC hospital has OPD of more than 3000 patients daily. In this, more than 100 patients come for emergency treatment. The same number of new patients are admitted to the hospital every day. In such a situation, patients will have to face problems due to the heavy workload on the shoulders of junior doctors. There is often a crowd here due to the patients coming from all over the state for treatment.
