LASUTH resident doctors begin warning strike Jan 28

By - - [General ]

Resident doctors at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja will begin three days warning strike on January 28, the President, Association Doctors (ARD-LASUTH) president Dr. Fatai Balogun said yesterday.

The strike, is over shortage of house officers and resident doctors.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the association last September went on an indefinite strike to demand the replacement of house officers and resident doctors that left.

Balogun said the strike was suspended following the management’s promise to replace them.

“This crisis has been recurring over the years without any structured policy put in place to ensure seamless replacement of the exited doctors.

“This, however, creates loopholes in the provision of optimal clinical service delivery.

“It is made to appear that the only language understood by them is an avoidable industrial action.

“All we are asking for is seamless employment of resident doctors and house officers; this should not be a tall order.

“The association is left with no option but to reluctantly resume the suspended strike with a three-day warning strike, which inevitably commences at 8am on Monday, January 28,” Balogun said.

He said shortage of doctors had resulted in long waiting period by patients and inefficient sub-optimal health care service.

The doctors, he said, were being overworked and are falling ill.

“Until our struggle last September, the government did not employ doctors.

“The state government, after the struggle, employed only 55 house officers and promised to employ the remaining 25 last December.

“Up till now, they have not been employed,” Balogun said.

LASUTH Chief Medical Director Prof. Adetokunbo Fabamwo promised to avert the strike.

He said the Head of Service, Mr. Hakeem Muri-Okunola, would ensure the treatment of the paper work needed in the recruitment of doctors.

“The head of service believes there should be a template for automatic replacement of doctors. He says he will work towards that in order to address the shortage,” Fabamwo said.
