A special medical committee consisting of technical specialists has been appointed to look into labour room training in an attempt to resolve issues between nurses and midwives .
The Ministry of Health has instructed the committee to consider suggestions and proposals from both parties and formulate suitable resolutions to resolve this matter overthe next two weeks.
The ministry requested all trade unions to avoid taking trade union action against the decision.
The President of the Sri lanka Government Midwives Association, Devika Kodithuwakku said that a final decision on their future trade union actions will be arrived at during the meeting on Saturday.
Meanwhile, midwives commenced a strike action on January 30 in response to the decision to initiate labour room training to nurses. As a result, maternal and child development clinics could not function during the last two days.
