COLOMBO (News 1st); Hospital activities were hampered for the second consecutive day as 15 trade unions are on strike citing 14 demands.

These trade unions represent laboratory technicians, radiologists, pharmacists as well as public health inspectors.

The Joint Council of Professions Supplementary to Medicine last week warned that they too would be compelled to take union action unless the Health Ministry took action to redress their grievances, especially with regard to including their services in the gazette notification that addressed the issues of the nurses.

According to reports, a lesser number of patients had reported to hospitals on Tuesday (06) compared to Monday (05).
