Almost 1,000 resident doctors from multiple medical colleges in Gujarat went on strike for a day on Tuesday, claiming that a paucity of staff in public hospitals has increased their load as a result of the delay in new postgraduate admissions.

Other government hospitals held a similar strike on November 29, refusing to work in the OPD (out-patient department) from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

According to Dr. Oman Prajapati, vice president of the Junior Doctors’ Association of Ahmedabad’s B J Medical College, which is linked with the Civil Hospital, they decided to organise a similar demonstration on Tuesday because their demands were not met.

“Patients will not be affected as a result of the strike because emergency work will be covered by resident doctors.” “However, if a long-term solution is not found soon, we may have to withdraw from additional services,” Prajapati said.

He said that one resident doctor was doing the duties of three due to a staffing shortfall.

Other major cities, like as Surat and Vadodara, joined the walkout and sat outside their respective colleges to demonstrate their anger.

They are protesting the postponement of NEET-PG counselling, claiming that the delay has caused a serious shortage of doctors, lowering the quality of care provided to patients in government hospitals because one resident doctor is handling the duties of three.

The Centre has postponed NEET-PG 2021 counselling till January of next year, as well as informing the Supreme Court, due to a number of issues. Counseling is part of the admissions process.

The National Eligibility cum Entrance Test for Postgraduate (NEET-PG) is offered for professions such as Master of Surgery and Doctor of Medicine.

“Due to the postponement of counselling, the new batch of PG students has yet to arrive.” In an ideal world, the fresh batch would have arrived in May. This time, it will come in March of the following year. Only two batches of resident doctors have been caring for all of the patients for the past year, according to a doctor from Surat who was protesting.

Despite a symbolic walkout on November 29, officials did not communicate with resident doctors to resolve the issue, she continued.

“The bulk of civil hospitals are handled by resident doctors,” says a resident doctor at this city’s B J Medical College. We are, however, currently hardworking and mentally drained. Patients are also suffering since hospitals barely have 35% of the doctors they require. To reduce our workload, the government may consider hiring medical officials on a temporary basis.”
