Doctors stage one-day strike, participation high say unions


Rome, December 12 - Italian national health system
doctors were stating a one-day strike on Tuesday.
Some 40,000 surgical operations have been cancelled as well as
hundreds of thousands of specialist examinations and diagnostic
tests, while public veterinary services have also been hit, the
ANAAO Assomed union said.
The doctors' unions called the strike in protest at the 2018
budget bill currently being debated in parliament and the
stall in talks on renewing their members' collective contracts.
Several unions representing national health system doctors
said in a joint statement on Tuesday that the number of
physicians taking part in the strike was "above all predictions"
with peaks of 80% in some places.
The statement said doctors were taking place in over 50
different protests on Tuesday, stressing that emergency services
were guaranteed.
