Doctors may go on strike on March 10

Doctors may go on strike on March 10 as 37,472 doctors on February 28 agreed on the scheduled strike. 37,472 account for 41.3% of the physicians registered for the national health insurance.

If those doctors participate in the strike, it will be a truly disaster. But critics have some doubt about whether they all will go on strike as scheduled.

Some local physicians associations plan to have their members vote again on whether they will really participate in the strike driven by the Korean Medical Association (KMA).

A president of a local doctors association said, “Executive members of the KMA and sub-associations will go on strike, but I am not sure of how many will go with them.”

A primary care physician in Daejeon said, “What are they (the KMA) going to do after the strike? Isn’t it too much without any strategy towards the end?”

It is said that doctors in hospitals are unlikely to participate as Korean Hospitals Association doesn’t seem to agree on the upcoming strike.
