Doctors abandon patients in Ondo

Medical doctors at the Ondo Infectious Disease Hospital (IDH) under the auspices of the National Association of Government General Medical and Dental Practitioners (NAGGMDP) have stopped attending to patients.

The Ondo IDH is where patients that tested positive for infectious disease like lassa fever and coronavirus are treated.
State Secretary of NAGGMDP, Dr. Olasakinju Tunde, who announced the doctors’ withdrawal of service in a statement, said it was due to failure of Government to accede to their demands.
Among their demands were alleged government failure to conclude negotiations on the erstwhile suspended Minimum Wage and Consequential Adjustments already enjoyed by the Non-Medical Staff Since January 2020, inadequate supply of personal protective equipments (PPE) and the general welfare of our members which include Life Insurance for Frontline doctors.
