Doctors’ Strike: Minister Orders NYSC Members, Consultants, Interns To Take Over

Sequel to the industrial action by National Association of Resident Doctors, NARD, Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, has ordered heads of its facilities nationwide to ensure that all available medical doctors stand in.

The minister on Monday issued the directive to the medical directors and the chief medical directors of federal government owned hospitals.

Consequently, consultants, National Youth Service (NYSC) doctors and their colleagues on internship are expected to be on duty to provide health services at the hospitals to avoid total breakdown in health care services.

The minister assured all Nigerians that the federal government’s health facilities will be open and render services to the people while the government continues to dialogue with the resident doctors.

They are also under the employment of the federal government during their residency training.
