The clinical and Out Patients Department (OPD) treatment at the Karapitiya Teaching Hospital were suspended yesterday followed by a clash among a specialist doctor and two other doctors.  

 

It was reported that the two doctors who served as ward-heads of the hospital had parked their vehicles in the place allotted for  specialist doctor and accordingly, the irate specialist doctor had slammed the other doctors.  


The two doctors had decided to refrain from attending their duties at the hospital whilst the other doctors too had not engaged in their duties in support of them.  


Many patients who arrived in the hospitals for clinics were inconvenienced due to this condition.
