An informed source told 218 that work in hospitals in the city of Tripoli had stopped, marking the start of the doctors’ strike.
The source pointed out that a dispute broke out between some consultants who wanted to perform operations for their scheduled operations, while elective operations were canceled in hospitals.
The same source confirmed that work is continuing in the departments of dialysis, oncology and urgent cases.
The General Syndicate of Libyan Doctors had previously called for the closure of all outpatient clinics in public hospitals and health centers, starting June 5th for a week, in order to reform the sector.
The Syndicate asked all doctors and medical professionals to abide by the strike and instructions and not listen to what some hospital administrations are fearing for their positions.
