Government hospital doctors will carry out worker assemblies on Wednesday to protest  a “wave of dismissals” of “contractor physicians” during the past few months and the “continuing harm to the status of Israeli doctors.”

The meetings organized by the state hospital doctors’ union will be held at Sheba, Rambam, Wolfson, Assaf Harofeh, Barzilai, Abarbanel, Western Galilee and Poriya Medical Centers. They are expected to disrupt regular activities in the hospitals for a few hours. In October, surgeons closed down operating rooms at Sheba in similar protests.
