Government fires all intern doctors

The government of Uganda has fired all intern doctors over strike.

This was revealed through a letter that was written to all hospital directors countrywide.

According to the letter, one week has been given to intern doctors to leave

“All medical interns on strike vacate the hospital premises within one week of the date of this letter to pave way for the new medical interns that are due to start in the year 2022,” the letter said in part.

The ministry says they should find a way of completing their internship elsewhere.

Intern doctors launched their strike in November over the ‘fake’ promises said to them by government to increase their salary.
