The nationwide strike called for by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) to protest the attack on doctors in West Bengal affected medical services in the government and private hospitals in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on Monday.

The out-patient services at major government hospitals in the capital city like Osmania General Hospital, Gandhi Hospital, ENT Hospital and Nizam's Institute of Medical Sciences (NIMS) among others came to a standstill.

Hundreds of patients who visited the strike-hit hospitals from various parts of the State had to face hardships as doctors stayed away from their duties and participated in protests condemning attacks on their colleagues in WB.

Doctors boycotted all services except emergency services, even in corporate hospitals and nursing homes.

Doctors at Osmania Hospital staged a protest demanding punishment to those involved in the attack. They were carrying placards with slogans "no security no service" and "suffering but still serving".

At the protest held at Gandhi Hospital, the doctors demanded a stringent law to deal with the attacks on their fraternity.

The medical fraternity in BIACH&RI also organized a protest on its premises. The doctors boycotted all medical services except emergency and casuality services in the hospital. IMA Telangana president Dr Pratap Reddy, IMA Telangana Secretary Dr Sanjeev Singh Jadav, IMA Telangana secretary Dr Shiva Linga and other executive members of IMA Telangana participated in the agitation along with the doctors of BIACH&RI.

Members of the Obstetrics & Gynecological Society of Hyderabad also went on strike against violence on doctors on Monday from 6 am on June 17 to 6 am on June 18.

Out-patient services also came to a halt at government and private hospitals in the rest of Telangana.

Patients suffered in Andhra Pradesh too as doctors struck work. Doctors at hospitals in Vijayawada, Guntur, Visakhapatnam, Tirupati, Kurnool and other places boycotted their duties and staged protests.
