Surgeries and out-patient department operations were affected in most government hospitals as 20,000 junior doctors went on mass casual leave on Thursday to support their counterparts in Mumbai asking for security in hospitals. While emergency services are operational, services in the OPD, wards and routine operation theatres were not working to capacity between 9am and 4pm in all government hospitals in Delhi.

Most scheduled surgeries at all major hospitals were cancelled. Lok Nayak alone cancelled nearly 30 surgeries scheduled for Thursday. Doctors at All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and Safdarjung continued work but supported the strike. AIIMS doctors came to work wearing driving helmets and Safdarjung doctors had black ribbons pinned to their chest.

Doctors from a private hospital -- Sir Ganga Ram Hospital -- also decided to shut down their general and private OPD.
