Doctors threaten more strike action

in News · 03-08-2017 14:24:00 · 0 Comments

Portugal’s doctors have threatened to stage their ninth bout of national strike action, at the end of this month or beginning of next month.

Organisations representing the doctors have given the government until the end of the month to commit to resolving their main demands.
These include reducing overtime, reducing the number of patients per family doctor, and reducing compulsory hours the doctors are required to work in Emergency departments.
This follows strike action staged by doctors earlier this year on 10 and 11 May.
