Doctors’ strike postpones more operations

Nearly 800 operations scheduled at Norwegian hospitals have been postponed in recent weeks because of an ongoing strike by doctors. Two hospitals have reported that children are also now being affected by the strike.

A total of 15 hospitals around the country have been targeted for labour disruptions after the number of doctors called out on strike topped 595 last week. More may be called out, as disagreement prevails over the long duty shifts demanded of doctors at Norway’s state owned hospitals.

Hospitals currently affected by the doctors’ strike include St Olavs Hospital in Trondheim, Sykehuset in Vestfold, the Vestre Viken hospitals in Bærum, Drammen, Kongsberg and Ringerike; Akershus University Hospital, Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen, the new Østfold hospital in Sarpsborg, Oslo University Hospital and Helse Stavanger.
