Senior Hospital Doctors have agreed to increase the range of services they are offering following their meeting with the Acting President, Vice President Constantino Chiwenga.
In a statement released Monday, the Senior Hospital Doctors Association (SHDA) said:
On 15 January 2020, the SHDA executive met the acting President, His Excellency Honourable CDGN Chiwenga and deliberated on the issues bedevilling the health delivery system of the nation. The acting President expressed his commitment to a holistic approach to handling the situation.
In a meeting of the members of the SHDA on 20 January 2020, members agreed to upscale from only offering emergency services to include the urgent cases which could not be assisted all along based on the assessments done by their executive.
Senior Doctors had since last year suspended all other services except for emergency services citing incapacitation to execute their contractual duties and responsibilities.
They are demanding an increment to their “measly” salaries which they say have since been eroded by the soaring inflation.
