GUNTUR: The ongoing strike of PG medical students of the Government General Hospital (GGH) has hit medical services badly.
About 120 PG students are on strike demanding payment of their stipend arrears. As part of the strike, the medicos who are not getting their stipend for the past four months, have also boycotted emergency services.
The 1200bed GGH gets patients from not only from far off places in Guntur district, but also from Nellore, Prakasam, Krishna, Nalgonda and West Godavari.
The hospital authorities are refusing to admit patients coming from far off places due to the strike of medicos.
