New Constitution will cripple National Health Service: GMOA Secretary


The proposed new Constitution will pose a great danger to the entire National Health Service in the country, GMOA Secretary Dr. Haritha Aluthge said, today.

Addressing a press conference at the GMOA Headquarters in Colombo he said that the proposed new Constitution gives the powers to Provincial authorities to distort the treatment service implemented according to the National Policy.

Treatment offered to various diseases such as dengue can be affected by this, he said.

According to Dr. Aluthge, the proposed new Constitution will also affect disease prevention allowing Provincial authorities to interfere in the process and there is a possibility that already eliminated diseases such as Polio, Malaria will re-emerge, he said. 

He also said that treatment offered to cancer other terminal illnesses could be affected by the new Constitution. 

The proposed new Constitution gives powers to Provincial Councils to interfere in medical administration and managing human resources according to politicians' personal requirements, Dr. Aluthge further charged. 

So far everything has been done focused on the national interest, he added

This first realistic truth GMOA spoke these last 3 years applies to National health, National education, Highways, National security and the Forces, and other Central policies and assets, which should not be subject to Provincial Councils. Careful consideration and review must point out unalterable areas to avoid the abuse of some MPs tying victims to trees. Political power corrupts and murders opponents, as we have seen in the past. Integrity and honesty are rare in our money craving liars without any inner moral values. Any new policies must flow out smoothly from existing policies, making the transition clearly understood by leaders and citizens, without adding confusion or opportunistic paths for the lawless freedom of lunatics.

Hello, it is already crippled because of you the GMOA.

Implementation of Provincial control in the UK has brought a 100 fold increase in costs as well lottery type care-in other words -quality of care depends on luck- Luck on where you live,how much the provincial spending was that year etc. Health care cannot be left to lady luck
