A number of doctors withdrew from Gulf 20 championship, that is expected to be launched tomorrow, Monday, November 22nd, 2010, ambulance teams. They withdrew protesting about the financial incentives and neglecting nutritional side.
One of the doctors, preferred to not reveal his name, said to Mareb press that Gulf 20 ambulance team doctors got training on ITLS on emergency and first aid. However, 20 of them withdrew from the teams.
He added that the financial incentive which is 3000 YR for each doctor a day is the reason behind the withdrawal. He mentioned that the concerned authority forgot about counting food allowance, meaning that 3000 covers all expenses including food. Besides, nurses are given 2000 per day for each.
The doctors wondered: “where are the incentives of the health sector in Gulf 20's budget, which is beyond millions?"
The ambulance teams will be distributed in all stadiums, round abouts , hotels and all constructions dedicated for the championship.
