Doctors call two-day strike for May 10-11

Doctors syndicates have called a two-day national strike for May 10-11.

The reasons given are “lack of agreement with the health ministry after a year of negotiations, and its failure to comply with established promises – namely to pay overtime and open placement programmes”:

Said Jorge Neves of the doctors federation “we have been pushed into this by the accentuated degradation of public health services” visible, he stressed, every day.
