The Doctors' Syndicate is officially supporting the al-Mabarra Hospital staff strike and has sent a notification to the Health Ministry and the Therapeutic Foundation stating this.
Doctors from the foundation decided to strike after the foundation issued regulations assigning bonuses to its doctors that are much lower than what their colleagues receive in public hospitals.
The syndicate had previously sent a letter to the secretary general of the Therapeutic Foundation Wafiq Refaat and Health Minister Adel Adawi concerning the meager bonuses doctors at the Foundation were receiving, according to the statement by the Doctors' Syndicate.
The syndicate has as yet received no response. The strike is scheduled to begin on 4 April.
