The Government Medical Officers Association says more issues will arise if the government acquires the Neville Fernando hospital in Malabe.
Speaking at a media briefing, Chairman of the Galle District Dr. Janak Liyanage said the issues will increase if the hospital is acquired when Medical Faculties exist.
The GMOA Chairman of the Galle District said salaries of those working at the hospital will be paid by the government adding that a majority of doctors at the Neville Fernando hospital have not been approved by the Sri Lanka Medical Council.
He also said students of the South Asian Institute of Technology and Medicine will not be able to train at the hospital adding that the students will not have a place to train following government acquisition.
Dr. Janak Liyanage said the issue has not been solved, it has been worsened.
