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.
