IKA doctors call off rolling strikes

Doctors employed by the Social Security Foundation (IKA) have called off their rolling strike action.

They said on Friday that they would protest the government?s radical reform of the health sector in other ways.

The doctors said they would challenge in court specific provisions of the health reform bill that was voted through Parliament on Wednesday.

State hospital doctors in Athens and Thessaloniki have also called off their strike action ?temporarily? to join talks with Health Ministry officials.
