Beruwala PHI & NIHS protest through strikeh 

Public Health Inspectors representing the PHI Union and the National Institute of Health Sciences in Beruwala of the Kalutara District will withdraw from services in protest.

Speaking to NewsRadio Secretary of the PHI Union Mahendra Balasuriya attributed the decision to a professional conflict with an official of the Beruwala Medical Office of Health.

He said a professional conflict was reported between the PHI and a MOH official during the first wave of COVID-19, adding that the individual was issued a temporary transfer.

However Balasuriya charged that efforts are underway to retransfer the official to Beruwala.

He noted that facts in this regard have been handed over to the Ministry of Health adding that PHI officers hope a solution will be provided by the Minister of Health, the Secretary of the Ministry and the Director General of Health Services.
