  • The Medical Association says that thousands of medical practitioners will close their clinics on March 10. At Seoul Metropolitan Government, we are doing what we can to reduce the inconvenience caused to people. It is reported that dental clinics and Korean Oriental medicine clinics will not take part in the one-day strike.

    We have discussed this matter with the community health center in the 25 autonomous districts of Seoul. They, along with the eight municipal hospitals, will work until 10:00 pm on March 10 the sake of our citizens.

    The 120 Dasan Call Center and the 119 Health Call Center will inform callers of the list of clinics not taking part in the strike. In addition, we will issue an order that the clinics participating in the strike should restart their operations immediately.
