Doctors demanded unconditional apology from Mamta Banerjee

Dr. Harshwardhan asked her to personally intervene, ensure safety.

Medical Services across the India were hit on Friday with doctors taking to the streets to protest against the attacks on junior doctors on duty in West Bengal.

There was complete shut-down of OPD services and routine surgeries in government hospitals almost throughout country including Delhi, Maharashtra, Bihar, Bhopal, Trivandrum and Bengaluru. However, emergency services across the country were exempted from the protest.
It all started when on Monday night two of junior doctors at NRS Medical College and Hospital, Kolkata were beaten up and left seriously injured over death of 75 year-old patient. Doctors of NRS claimed that over 200 people landed up the facility and turned the hospital premises into a battleground. Dr. Pratibha Mukherhjee, an intern doctor at the government hospital is fighting for his life with fractured skull.
CM Mamta Banerjee had contended that outsiders had entered medical colleges to create disturbances and the agitation is a conspiracy by the CPI(M) and the BJP. She called together the protesting doctors to secretariat for a meeting to find a solution for ongoing situation of deadlock but doctors refused the proposal saying its a ploy to break their unity and agitation. They demanded an unconditional apology from CM.
Union Minister for Health Dr. Harshwardhan condemns violence against doctors in Kolkata and has written to West Bengal CM to personally intervene into matter to resolve current impasse. He urged patients and their attendants to exercise restraint and said he will take up the matter of doctors’ security with chief ministers of States of all states and Union Territories. He also asked the doctors to ensure that essential services to the people are not disrupted, an official statement said.
Indian Medical Association and Alliance of Doctors for Ethical Healthcare have urged the government to frame a central law to check violence against healthcare workers in hospitals.

Following are the demands by doctors which will help in minimising such incidences:
• To ensure that the cases are registered, culprits are arrested and conviction is necessitated, appropriate mandatory provisions as provided in the POCSO Act has to be instituted.
• Hospitals should be declared as special zones and the provision of appropriate security should be the responsibility of the state.
• The National Law against violence on hospitals has to be brought in urgently.
• The law should provide a minimum of seven years of imprisonment for hospital violence.
