By Lankatruth.com [Most Reliable News From Sri Lanka] - Tue May 03, 12:58 am

An agitation is to be held in several hospitals today (3rd) at 12.00 noon to demand the government to take over the private medical school at Malabe also known as SAITM.  According to Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) the move would not inconvenience patients as it is carried out during the lunch hour.

Meanwhile GMOA has accused of an arrangement to move a number of in-house mental patients from the Mulleriyawa Hospital to Malabe private medical school. The mental patients are to be used for final-year examination related ‘activities’ accuses the GMOA.

GMOA has stated that the Health Ministry and the Sri Lanka Medical Council (SLMC) would be informed about the move as it is a grave violation of the law and patients’ rights.
