Mumbai: The ‘mass bunk’ by junior doctors at the state–run JJ Hospital and the civic–run Sion Hospital on Monday had little impact on patient-care services as there as senior doctors were asked to pitch in, keeping in mind the absentees.

The leaves of all senior doctors in JJ Hospital, from the rank of professors and assistant professors, has been cancelled and they were asked to report to work on Monday, said the dean of JJ Hospital, Dr S. Nanandkar.

A patient, Deepak Parab, who visited the ortho-physiotherapy department at Sion Hospital, said, “I came here today and I did not notice any doctors missing. I got my physiotherapy done.” Another patient, Seema Nakhwa, said, “I came to Sion Hospital for neck treatment and I received it. I did not find the patient-care services lacking. ”

Stating that no emergency services were affected, Dr Nanandkar said that the administration had cancelled summer vacations of more than 110 senior doctors, and all seniors doctors were working.” The acting dean of the civic- run Sion hospital, Dr S. Monkar, said, “Emergency services were not affected as seniors were working and patients did not suffer.”  

Asked if any action would be taken against agitating medicos, Dr Monkar said, “Doctors were absent, but did not specify the reason of their absence. If things continue,  action will be taken subsequently.”
