The hospital's deputy medical superintendent said they will be paid today

Around 200 house officers (doctors doing their house job) staged a demonstration at Abbasi Shaheed Hospital on Monday to protest not being paid their salaries. The hospital’s OPDs were closed due to the protest.

One doctor, Dr Irsa Nadeem, told SAMAA Digital that house officers have not been paid from four months. She said that excuses were given when they asked about their salaries.

She said the hospital management has threatened that the police will escort them from the premises if they don’t stop protesting.

Applications were submitted on February 13 and March 9, but no action has been taken.

Deputy medical superintendent Dr Nadeem said that house officers are provided stipends instead of salaries, which is usually delayed in the first month. He said they will receive their 40-day salary today (Monday).

He said that their last two months’ stipend will be paid next month and gave the order to open the OPDs.
