Doctors on strike and calling for another strike next week

The president of the Dominican Medical College (CMD), Waldo Ariel Suero has announced another national strike at public hospitals for 48 hours starting Wednesday, 11 October 2017, in response to the comments by the director of the National Health Service, Nelson Rodríguez Monegro, who accused the heads of the union of being irrational and of putting the brakes on medical progress in the country.

Suero declared Rodríguez Monegro a persona no grata and immediately burned a picture of him, accusing him of keeping the health system in chaos. He said he had thrown fuel on the fire and if he wanted problems and confrontation, he would have them.

Suero was speaking at a press conference at the Francisco Moscoso Puello Hospital where he spoke about the dangerous situation the health and administrative personnel were working due to the slow pace of the remodeling.

Speaking about the strike yesterday, he said he expected a full turn out and around the country doctors were marching asking for their salaries to be paid, some having not been paid for three months.
