Pharmacists to close govt pharmacies on Monday over low pay

Editor,
As Pharmacists in the govt hospitals we have vowed not to go back for work until govt improves our conditions of service.
This was decided on Friday at 10: 00hrs by the general membership who opted to close the pharmacy with immediate effect in the copperbelt and the rest of the country pharmacy was closed UTH pharmacy will be also closed on monday until govt improves the conditions of service .

On Monday the patients who are in the wards will not receive the medications because the pharmacy will be closed. TB and HIV patients will not be attended to by the pharmacists this will result in multiple drug resistance to the patients. Please watchdog we have faith in you follow up on this matter and also inform the nation.

We only received an increment of K41.38 with no any allowance.
Upset pharmacist
UTH
