PETALING JAYA: The Hartal Doktor Kontrak group says doctors are giving 24-hour notices, seemingly after being burnt out and frustrated at the lack of career opportunities.

A social media campaign, Hartal Doktor Kontrak has called for contract doctors to go on strike on July 26 if the government fails to resolve the issue of their permanent placement.

A representative from Hartal Doktor Kontrak previously told FMT there were not many incentives for contract doctors to remain in public service, adding that there are also lack of opportunities for junior doctors to further develop their careers, either through a master’s degree or by taking up a specialisation.

“Doctors are resigning with 24 hours’ notice. Simply too tired and can’t take it anymore,” stated a post on Hartal Doktor Kontrak’s Twitter account yesterday.

Attached to the post was a photo of a roster which showed that a staff member had resigned. No information on the hospital or medical facility was provided.
