UPDATE: UCH Resident Doctors Continue Strike Action Amid Alleged Assault on Member

The Association of Resident Doctors, UCH Chapter have announced the indefinite extension of their 3-day strike action amid the alleged assault of their colleague by members of the administrative staff of the Hospital.

According to a tweet on their official Twitter handle, the resident doctors said they decided to continue the strike action since the Hospital’s management is unwilling to let the doctors get justice for their colleague.

They insist that the members of staff who perpetrated the dastardly act must be punished and that the matter must not be swept under the carpet.

Their words: “Following the judgemental query, a clear verdict served our assaulted member earlier today, even before the setting up of a panel of enquiry, it is now very clear that the UCH management is not ready to let us get justice for our member.

“And as such the withdrawal of clinical services will continue until further notice until the needful is done.

“We will not risk the lives and safety of more doctors to a working environment that we have not been guaranteed to be secure.

“And until justice is served to the miscreants, there cannot be a closure and the likelihood of recurrence of such ugly incident is high.”
