KDF doctors offer medical services amid health crisis

By KBC Reporter

Kenya Defense Forces doctors are offering and performing various medical services and procedures at Kenyatta National and Referral Hospital.  

The government deployed KDF doctors to KNF on Friday after 290 consultants and University of Nairobi Medical school lectures joined the ongoing nationwide strike.

However, there are no signs of doctor’s ending their strike after talks between the Kenya Medical Practitioners, Pharmacists and Dentists Union officials and the government collapsed.

KMPDU officials were angered by the Industrial and Labour Relations warrant of arrest orders.

They insist that the order must be withdrawn for them to resume talks.

The hard stance remains even as poor patients continue to suffer and die across the country following the health workers boycott.

Meanwhile, nurses at the at the KNH have threatened to boycott duty beginning Tuesday if the hospital does not sign a recognition agreement and remit monies for nurses in union.

Kenya National Union of Nurses Secretary General Seth Panyako says the union’s national governing council will on Monday review the progress of the industrial action and give directions on the next course of action.
