Young doctors’ ire in Bannu shows no sign of cooling down as all the departments, barring emergency, at city’s all three MTI hospitals were closed on Wednesday and the doctors relinquished all their additional charges and resigned, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

Not only that, the doctors also closed their private clinics as a part of their ongoing strike

Talking to the media, doctors said that neither there were facilities for them at hospitals nor medicines for the patients.  

They said that patients had to go outside the hospital for buying medicines as well as for their medical tests. 

They further said that the Board of Governors (BoG) had those persons as its members who did not have any knowledge of the health issues nor were they informed about the problems confronting the patients at hospitals. 

The BoG, instead of spending money on the purchase of machinery for hospitals, wastes it on buying unnecessary items, they said, adding that whenever they raised their voice over that they were dubbed as ‘problematic’ by the authorities and victimized.

The doctors made it clear that they would not call off their strike until and unless the BoG was dissolved.
