He said that sincere steps should be taken for betterment of employees of PIMS and Federal Government Polyclinic (FGPC) hospital for having efficient service delivery system.
“If hospitals staff are satisfied they will provide their service in better way. Departments concerned should consider the problems of PIMS protesters and resolve immediately.”
Chairman Grand Health Alliance Dr Asfandyar Khan said that if their demands were not met by the competent authorities then there will be complete strike in the hospital.
He said that all departments including OPDs will remain non-functional except corona ward and emergency department while administration, nursing college and purchase department will also remained closed.
Meanwhile, the medical and non-medical staff of Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences on Monday continued their protest in favour of their demands. Doctors and their supporting staff remained absent from their duties in OPDs.
