Right to practice surgery denied?

It has been reported that the SLMC has lost one of its fundamentals which is vital for its function as an independent body. That is”collective responsibility”.

This was highlighted by a recently published news article by certain council members to claim credit for correcting(?) the SLMC registration status back to “right to practice Medicine and Surgery”. (The Island 25-03-2013, දිවයින 26-03-2013).

At the same time many point out that since no Sri Lankan medical professional has yet been denied of “right to practice surgery” for the last 8 years by this “error”, most likely no body will be affected even it is left to remain the same in the future also.
