The Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) has decided to withdraw from all transfer boards of doctors from today (January 10) due to irregular transfers by the Health Ministry, the GMOA stated.

The GMOA Executive Committee which met today (Jan 10) decided to withdraw from the transfer activities, “until the implementation of transparent transfer policy without any bias,” it said.

“Government medical officers association made several representations to the Director General and to the Secretary of Health, highlighting the necessity of adherence to the accepted transfer policies and to the Public Service Commission (PSC) orders, with regard to transfer and appointments of all categories of medical officers.

We regret to note that they have failed to rectify several irregular transfers, despite our repetitive presentations,” GMOA Secretary Dr. Chandika Epitakaduwa said in a release today.
