Patients groups protest against the doctors who decided to go on strike, voicing that they can’t accept the strike although they disagree on for-profit healthcare services.

Patients groups announced their statement on Monday and distributed their flyers to citizens on busy streets and at big hospitals in Seoul to oppose the scheduled strike on March 10.

The Korean Organization for Patient Groups will have a press conference on March 7 and take further actions to prevent doctors’ strike.

Ahn Sang Ho, President of Congenital Heart Disease Patient Group, said, “Discontinuation of medical treatments is life-threatening to us. If doctors hold patients for ransom, we, the patients, will fight against them with all our efforts.”

Ahn added, “We will also request the government to enhance the right of a patient. Actually the doctors’ strike gives a chance for that.”
