Contrary to the Israel Medical Association’s announcement last Thursday on doctors’ sanctions this week, they will affect only outpatient clinics in general, psychiatric and geriatric hospitals from Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer and northward, and not diagnostic institutes and day hospitals.

On Sunday, only outpatient clinics in this region were closed.

The IMA spokeswoman said Sunday that they had not reduced sanctions but had erred in its previous announcement.

The Finance Ministry negotiators and the IMA’s representatives met on Sunday to discuss pensioners’ payments and senior doctors’ wage scales. The IMA also requested daily talks, but the Treasury did not immediately respond.
