Santo Tomas doctor strike ends
OUT- PATIENTS at Hospital Santo Tomas (HST) can again start booking medical appointments after doctors and residents ended their four-day work stoppage on Thursday, April 20.
The Ministry of Health (Minsa) made the announcement soon after 3 pm following a meeting with Deputy Minister of Health Dr. Eric Ulloa.
The stoppage which led to the cancellation of dozens of external appointments and elective surgeries was over delays in payment for extra shifts.
