PETALING JAYA: A group of government doctors in support of the Hartal Doktor Kontrak movement began their peaceful protest at hospitals nationwide at 11am on Monday (July 26) to push for reform of the system which, they claim, hinders their career progress and offers no job security.

Checks at Kuala Lumpur Hospital, Klang’s Tengku Ampuan Rahimah Hospital, Shah Alam Hospital, Melaka Hospital and Hospital Raja Perempuan Zainab II in Kota Baru found that contract medical officers walked out carrying placards from 11am.
