Patients Return Home As Doctors Commence Nationwide Strike

Many patients who visited the general hospitals in Abuja returned home in disappointment as the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD) commenced a nationwide indefinite strike.

NARD had declared indefinite strike on Wednesday but the action did not commence in many hospitals on Wednesday.

THE WHISTLER had reported on Wednesday that doctors at the Kubwa General Hospital in Abuja attended to patients despite the strike declared by NARD.

But when our correspondent visited the hospital at around 8:30 am on Thursday, patients were seen waiting for doctors for consultation but were told that doctors were on strike.
