Doctors in Dom Rep threatening industrial action

Doctors across the Dominican Republic are threatening to take industrial action in response to a breakdown in negotiations with the Government over the introduction of healthcare-related legislation. 
The doctors say the statutory changes are needed to overhaul the delivery of healthcare in the country. 
Interruptions to medical staffing will likely prompt delays and cancellations of appointments and other healthcare services. 
Security personnel have been put on alert to monitor and manage any displacement within the health sector. 
Already, the Government has issued advisories to members of the public to confirm all appointments set for Monday and to allow extra time when seeking healthcare services.
