As little progress has come out of negotiations between the Treasury and the Israel Medical Association, the IMA is continuing sanctions.

On Tuesday, hospital outpatient clinics, day hospitals and diagnostic institutes will close down in the northern half of the country (from Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer).

There will be no sanctions on Wednesday, the IMA said, but on Thursday, there will be an assembly of medical staffers who work with radiation, including cardiologists, urologists, anesthesiologists, gastroenterologists, orthopedists, lung specialists, vascular surgeons and nuclear medicine specialists, causing disruptions in various parts of the country between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
