The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Thursday banned young doctors’ strike.

According to the details, the LHC has completely put an end to young doctors’ strike overall the province.

Justice Jawad Hassan was hearing a petition against the strike being observed by the young doctors against the promulgation of the Pakistan Medical Commission Ordinance 2019.

The judge asked the bar’s leader to assist the court on legitimacy of strikes by the professionals when they were being regulated by their own bodies like authority, council or commission.

Young doctors have been on a strike against new government reforms across public hospitals in Punjab.

They have shut down OPDs, wards, laboratories and operation theatres at government teaching hospitals in some cities across the province.

Nurses and paramedics are also part of the strike.

Their protest is against the new Medical Teaching Institution Reforms Ordinance the PTI government plans to introduce in public hospitals.
