Chennai: IMA doctors to strike on December 11 – ET HealthWorld


Chennai: Non Covid-19 and non-emergency medical services across the state will be affected on December 11 as doctors led by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) will protest the Centre’s permission to Ayush practitioners to perform surgeries.

On Tuesday doctors across the state will organise demonstration in groups of 20 following Covid-19 norms from noon to 2pm.

“General public are not scapegoats to do research on them thrusting the mixopathy system on them and snatching away their right to choose the system of medicine they want to follow,”said IMA state secretary Dr AK Ravikumar.

The Central Council of Indian Medicine, a statutory body under the Ayush ministry, on November 20 issued a notification listing 39 general surgery procedures and around 19 procedures involving eye, ear, nose and throat by amending the Indian Medicine Central Council (Postgraduate Ayurveda Education) Regulations, 2016. “All these procedures fall under the ambit, authority and jurisdiction of modern medicine. They have been prescribed as the competencies ascribable to the postgraduate course titled MS (general surgery). A doctor performing these procedures needs specific modern medical skills and training,” he said.
