The Health Minister, Rajitha Senarathna misguided people that the government had taken over the Nevil Fernando private hospital, but eventually the 39 government hospital nurses who were attatched to the Nevil Fernando hospital, are in a big trouble.
During their one and a half year service as nurses in Nevil Fernando Hospital, they have been paid by the management of Castle Ladies Hospital but later, as it was against the law, the management of Castle Hospital stopped paying for those nurses, arguing that they should be appointed to the Castle Ladies Hospital if they are paid by the Castle Hospital management. Therefore these nurses did not get their salary from last month.
Considering this case, it is really obvious that the health minister’s huge propaganda about taking over the Nevil Fernando Hospital in to the government, is utterly false.
