Turkey -Family doctors on strike over on-duty system -December 12, 2014

Doctors working as family doctors in local health centres have staged a one day strike against a newly introduced on-duty system. The Full-Day law, which was passed in April, obliges family doctors to be included in on-duty systems in nearby hospitals. The law gave doctors holding academic positions three months to close their private clinic if they had one.

Doctors working as family doctors in local health centres have staged a one day strike against a newly introduced on-duty system. The Full-Day law, which was passed in April, obliges family doctors to be included in on-duty systems in nearby hospitals. The law has been widely criticised because it gave doctors holding academic positions three months to close their private clinic if they had one, otherwise their contract with public and university hospitals would be cancelled. Fear exists that many doctors will leave the public institutions in favour of private practice.
