Respite has finally come the way of patients in Osun state government hospitals.

Doctors in the state have been directed to resume work after a seven-day warning strike over salary arrears and poor working condition.

The doctors began the strike on September 18.

The directive for the resumption of work was contained in a communique jointly signed by the NMA Chairman, Dr Tokunbo Olajumoke and Secretary, Olalekan Ajayi.

It said that the strike was suspended due to the intervention of well-meaning stakeholders, who assured the association that the state government would address their grievances.

The association said the strike became necessary because of the poor condition of facilities in state hospitals and poor welfare.

According to the communiqué, the poor facilities have affected the quality of health care services rendered to citizens and had negatively affected the health indices of the state.
